Sustainable energy group ENER-G
turned the spotlight on green energy innovation at Manchester International Festival.
The Salford-based company showcased its latest innovations in combined heat and power, building energy management systems and community heating and district energy technology at the Glass House in the heart of Manchester's Festival Square.
The company's renewable and energy efficient technologies are sold in 20 countries - helping organisations globally to reduce their carbon footprint by 5.3 million tonnes each year. This is equivalent to the environmental benefit of removing 1.7 million cars from the road.
ENER-G combined heat and power systems create green power for Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle, as well as iconic Manchester buildings, such as the Town Hall, the Radisson Edwardian Hotel, and Granada Studios.
ENER-G designs and manufactures its energy efficient and renewable energy technologies at its global headquarters in Salford, but the company grew from small beginnings 29 years ago as one of the University of Manchester's first spin-out companies.
The company worked with the University in 1984 to pioneer advances in combined heat and power technology and today ENER-G is a European leader in this field.
ENER-G is a sponsor of Manchester International Festival and is supporting Manchester's new urban farm, the Biospheric Project
- part of the Festival.
