Under a Non-Domestic Energy Efficiency framework contract (the first involving the charity), Veolia is guaranteeing annual savings of over £106,000 and a 1.7 GWh reduction in grid electricity demand which is to be achieved by upgrade ageing plant and introducing energy improvements at the Scotstoun, Gorbals and Bellahouston Leisure Centres.


Veolia will also provide project management and consultancy services, and install a specialist energy performance contracting team to oversee building management system upgrades, the installation of variable speed drives (VSD) which are used to control the speed of machinery, and the retrofitting of modern lighting across sites.


In addition Bellahouston Leisure Centre will gain low carbon heat and electricity supplies from a 125kWe CHP unit that will reduce CO2 emissions by around 200 tonnes per year.


All upgrades will be funded by energy cost savings, with the initial investment provided through Scotland’s Energy Efficiency Programme that was established by the Scottish Government to accelerate the pace and scale of progress in transforming the energy efficiency of public sector buildings.


Richard Kirkman, Veolia's Chief Technology & Innovation Officer, said: 

"Enabling the public sector to become more sustainable, and helping to deliver budget efficiency, is very important as it enhances the services for the local communities. Our energy performance contracts can play a key role in meeting these aims by delivering the necessary investment and the guaranteed results that both reduce carbon emissions and build long term energy resilience. We look forward to working with Glasgow Life and supporting Scotland’s ambition on energy demand reduction and tackling climate change."
