Stadia and Sports Clubs

Plymouth Argyle Solar Panels

Stadium Solar Panels may sound like a grand design, but they’re no more than we deliver to our industrial clients, who also have massive roof space.  For example, the array we installed on the superb new Plymouth Argyle Grandstand is now a highly visible landmark, spelling out the initials of the club: ‘PAFC’; much to the delight of fans.

The Plymouth Argyle solar panels even made it into the press.

You don’t need to be a big football club though, solar panels are highly effective in even small concentrations, for example on top of your local cricket, football, and rugby ground stands and let’s not forget your Golf Clubhouse.

Becoming net-zero Carbon has appeal to those interested in participating in eco friendly fitness, as well as any spectators of a similar mindset, of which 88% are according to some surveys. It’ll also save you money immediately and for many years to come.

And Solar PV isn’t the only way to achieve eco friendly sports facilities; we can show you other ways of meeting your climate change and net-zero Carbon obligations. 

Think you’re too small to go green?

Well actually, you aren’t. On the positive side there’s another way to go green initially. Golf clubs, smaller sports clubs and cricket grounds will make substantial inroads by switching to fixed term green tariffs for electricity and now there’s green gas in various mixes as well.

Eco friendly fitness and eco stadiums are already here

The first thing to remember is that we’re in a race to be a net zero-Carbon economy by 2050. In fact, the Paris Climate Agreement commits the UK to it. Nowhere gets a pass.

As an illustration, as of 2019 over 270 councils declared a climate emergency. That’s a full twenty years before the Paris Climate Agreement comes into force.

So, wherever you look, you’ll find solar powered stadiums of all sizes.

The attitude of the public

A carbon trust survey indicates that 67% of people would feel more positive towards organisations that are reducing their carbon footprint. A Futurra survey goes further with 88%. This is most compelling evidence that the notion of an eco stadium or an environmentally friendly gym is not a fad.

What if we don’t have space or funds for Solar?

LED lighting can also make an enormous difference to both small and large concerns. This is particularly economic for internal facilities lighting, floodlighting and illuminating public areas.

Similarly, providing efficiently generated hot water from modern condensing boilers can save sizeable amounts of money and reduce your carbon footprint. 

Here are your options, depending on what type of facilities you operate –

  • Green electricity and gas tariffs
  • Fixed term green energy deals
  • Gas condensing boilers
  • Solar PV
  • Solar Thermal
  • LED lighting
  • Battery Storage
  • Air Source Heat Pumps
  • Ground Source Heat Pumps
  • Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

Award-winning IU Energy has capabilities with all these technologies. To discuss your options, contact us now. 

Electric Vehicle Charging Stations – eco-friendly sports Facilities

Let’s talk about a comparatively inexpensive option for many. In fact, it’s a visible demonstration that you’re at the vanguard of green sports and fitness and you don’t need to be a big stadium with solar panels – Electric Vehicle Charging Stations.

Increasingly more people are buying EVs and it’ll make you a more attractive facility and employer. In fact, the projected numbers of EVs are staggering –
