The leading climate technology platform has developed a bespoke scheme that will reduce energy consumption and unlock flexibility to be used for demand side programmes
Over the course of five years, the FT’s historic headquarters at Bracken House will save 22% of their energy bill.
The five year agreement with OakTree Power will see Bracken House modulate the consumption of non-essential electricity to accelerate net-zero goals by tapping into previous unavoidable CO2 emissions. Through this scheme, the Financial Times will ease congestions on the local electricity network in Paternoster Square.
The scheme is deployed by a smart IoT controller that has been integrated with the organisation’s own building control systems, which will enable OakTree Power to identify non-critical electricity consumption and intelligently modulate small amounts of energy usage. These reductions will be conducted in non-critical electrical plants and equipment such as pumps, fans and air conditioning chillers for short periods, without impacting performance.
