Is renewable energy suitable for your club?

Renewable energy or low carbon technologies can provide opportunities for sports clubs to reduce their energy costs, by providing an access to an alternative energy source.

The first priority for a club should always be to reduce energy consumption. Before considering a renewable energy source, you should review your electricity and heating fuel use and identify ways that these could be reduced. You should then consider ways in which essential energy use can be made more efficient. Watch our club audit video and visit the Green Clubs tool to help you with this.

Once you have reduced your club's energy use as far as possible, you may want to consider whether you could benefit from the use of renewable energy or low carbon technologies. Use the decision maker below to help you to identify which options may be suitable for your club.

Please note that the decision maker is intended as a guide only - always consult a reputable engineer.
