Alliance Leisure completes energy efficient works at four sites

In the last few weeks, Alliance Leisure has completed decarbonisation works at four leisure venues on behalf of three councils. Works, with a combined investment level of £5.3 million, are anticipated to deliver a total annual energy cost saving of £238,400 and an annual C02 reduction of 586 tonnes per year.

Teignmouth Lido and Broadmeadow Sports Centre, both owned by Teignbridge District Council along with Dronfield Leisure Centre, owned by North East Derbyshire District Council and Darlaston Swimming and Fitness Centre, owned by Walsall Council have all undergone works to improve energy efficiencies. Across the four sites, works have included replacing gas boilers with air source heat pumps, installing LED lighting and adding solar panels.

Speaking about the projects, Julia Goddard, Senior Business Development Manager at Alliance Leisure, says: “All three phases of the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme have been over-subscribed, highlighting the huge need for modernisation of ageing assets, such as energy intensive leisure centres. Including these four completed projects, Alliance Leisure is involved in 23 PSDS leisure projects across the UK with a total investment value of more than £30 million.”

We were delighted that Leisure Energy was appointed as Alliance Leisure’s partner to design and install renewable energy technologies and solutions at a number of public leisure facilities. Lowering carbon emissions and reducing energy usage is an important priority and commitment for local authorities and we are pleased to have been able to provide our industry leading expertise and support Teignbridge, North East Derbyshire and Walsall Councils’ in their transition to net zero carbon leisure facilities.

Works at these four sites have been managed by Alliance Leisure and delivered in conjunction with Leisure Energy, through the UK Leisure Framework which is managed by Denbighshire Leisure Ltd (DLL).

The Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme supports the aim of reducing emissions from public sector buildings by 75% by 2037 and has, so far, invested more than £3 billion across three funding phases.
