Humber Business Week renewables seminar a hit as Martin Dixon Ltd outlines huge business benefits

Martin Dixon Ltd's 'Going Green' seminar at Humber Business Week showed highlighted the thirst for information on the growing renewables energy sector, with almost all places taken and a lively question and answer session with delegates about the benefits of alternative energy sources.

Held at the KC Stadium on June 2, the free to attend seminar was staged to help companies across Hull and the East Riding understand how adopting new renewable technologies and methods into their businesses can have a massive impact on their bottom line.

Speakers, from companies including the likes of award-winning biomass firm Hargassner, outlined how adopting renewable forms of energy can have both a beneficial impact on the environment, and a company’s carbon footprint.

In depth analysis of the impact of biomass boilers, LED lighting and solar PV was provided by a the expert speakers, whilst a case study on the positive impact of all three energy systems was given by South Cave CE Primary School, now one of the UK's greenest schools.

Frank Saunders, business development manager at Martin Dixon Ltd, was delighted with the number in attendance, and a Q&A session in which delegates questioned the benefits of each of the renewable energy systems, the funding options available, and other issues such as insurance and guarantees.

"The pleasing thing was the amount of questions we fielded from the floor during the event," said Frank Saunders, business development manager at Martin Dixon Ltd.

"The aim of the event was to educate businesses about the benefits of renewable energy systems, but it also became an opportunity to tackle a few myths over the government paybacks, the reliability of the systems, and the options available to fund installations.

"Many people said they have found it very informative and they went away fully understanding why green energy is something they should strongly consider for the future. When we outlined the potential savings, and income which will be generated for years to come, it gave our guests plenty to consider."

Client Testimonials

Allan Whitehead, site manager, South Cave CE Primary School

Martin Dixon Ltd were brilliant. They stood out ahead of all other firms we looked at across the country as they could offer us the complete package. It was great to use an established local company with the expertise to deliver this for us, and throughout their time on site they were superb. Financially, the savings and extra income will allow us to run the school for a year at no cost to us.

Janet Huscroft, Headteacher, Hook CE Primary School

I was introduced to the work of Martin Dixon at an awareness raising meeting organised by the local NAHT Association. They installed solar panels and LED lighting throughout the school. The work was promptly carried out during the summer break of 2015, we are delighted with the results. I would have no hesitation in recommending Martin Dixon as a company to fulfil what they promise.

Alison Risebury, School Business Manager, Swinefleet Primary School

After just having had our LED lights fitted in school this week, I just wanted to get in touch to say thankyou to Martin Dixon for the work you did. All lights are now changed making a massive difference to the lighting within our school and hopefully to our electrical costs! Many thanks for the level of service that you have given us.
