Low carbon, onsite heating solution helps Champneys Forest Mere meet sustainability goals

6th January 2020

Putting sustainability at the heart of its operations is a top priority for luxury health resort Champneys.

AMP Clean Energy developed a low carbon biomass heat installation for Champneys forest Mere to deliver onsite, sustainable heat.

Champneys Forest Mere has made some impressive cost and carbon savings since they switched from oil to biomass heat. They have cut 20% from their heating bills and achieved carbon savings of 730 tonnes – equivalent to driving 3,600,000 miles in a diesel VW Golf.

AMP Clean Energy’s biomass experts take care of everything associated with the biomass heating system including fuel supply and service and maintenance. An energy supply agreement provides Champneys Forest Mere with long term energy security.

Champneys has five spa resorts in England which all have their own ‘Green Team’ onsite to oversee progress across a range of environmental criteria. It is a good example of a business which is supporting the UK’s net zero targets.

Jason Smitsdorff, Facilities Manager at Champneys Forest Mere, said: “At Champneys we try to go as green as possible so to reduce our CO2 emissions is beneficial for us. To have a sustainable energy source like a biomass boiler is very helpful to the business.”

Stuart Reid, Managing Director (Special Projects) at AMP Clean Energy, said: “Champneys is a good example of a large business which is leading the charge towards our net zero future. The heating system at Champneys Forest Mere is a great example of how biomass can help support an organisation’s corporate sustainability agenda.”
