Saving £240,245 through energy efficiency projects

Leyton Orient, unusually for a famous old name in football spent their first seven years throwing hard red cork and leather balls at each other as the Glyn Cricket Club. Following their slightly confused start, the club quickly settled down to carve out a name for themselves in football and moved to their current location in 1938. The 9,000 capacity stadium which plays host to fans from all over England is made up from a refurbished 1950s West Stand and three other modern stands which were completed during the early 2000s.

The site audit conducted by our consultant engineer resulted in a detailed energy efficiency business case which included a finance provision providing positive cash flow at the end of Q1 following commissioning.

Lit internally by fluorescent strip lighting the stadium will benefit from a 50% reduction in lighting costs through the wholesale adoption of LED. A further 12% of overall consumption will be cut through the installation of a photovoltaic array on the West stand’s ideally pitched roof. Combined these two measures alone are set to reduce CO2 omissions by 31t/annum. A further reduction of 25t CO2 is accounted for by the installation of an energy monitoring system and individually controlled intelligent electric radiators to accommodate the sporadic need to heat certain areas of the stadium buildings. Finally that all important, but water hungry turf is to be serviced by an onsite bore hole replacing the wasteful practise of potable mains water irrigation – also saving 1t of CO2.
