Westlakes Science Park Low Carbon Energy Masterplan

This brief represents the first stage in the development of our low carbon energy portfolio. A second stage will follow which will focus on the delivery of the recommendations from this first phase. We have a number of key outcomes to achieve from the delivery of the outputs that will result from this commission. The delivery of this brief must move the company significantly towards achieving these: 1. To ensure that Westlakes Science & Technology Park (Westlakes), our key property asset, is capable of complete independence from grid power and heat (but not an energy island) through the development of a smart micro-grid, and 2. To identify and implement energy generation and distribution opportunities across Westlakes (and potential developments in the vicinity of the Science Park that will impact on or benefit from linking into our developing energy asset portfolio) 3. The realisation of commercial returns in the near future from the low carbon energy portfolio we develop - to allow BEC to further invest in commercial and community energy assets 4. To develop internal knowledge, skills and capability in low carbon energy generation, efficiency and property development 5. To develop community benefit (through low carbon energy and property activity) in our most deprived rural and coastal communities. The specific output we expect from the delivery of this work is: A Low Carbon Energy Masterplan for Westlakes Science Park that: a. benchmarks our current position b. provides a route map for the development of a micro smart grid c. identifies opportunities for energy generation and energy efficiencies d. provides a prioritised implementation plan for investment, and e. identifies finance options (including self-funding) for the delivery of the identified opportunities These outputs must lead to: a. a low carbon energy generation portfolio focussed on (but not necessarily restricted to) Westlakes b. commercial profit from energy generation assets c. a property portfolio with significantly improved energy efficiency ratings and lower energy running costs d. an internal, skilled and knowledgeable low carbon energy team capable of initiating and delivering low carbon energy projects aligned, in most cases, to commercial property development and management
