Solar PV for Hotels & Leisure

Solar Panels for generating electricity

Hotels are perfect for Solar PV as usually all or most of the electricity generated can be utilised on-site gives the maximum possible electricity cost savings.

For low-risk electricity generation, quick financial paybacks (typically 3 to 5yrs payback)  and very long product warranties, the ideal solution is solar PV (photovoltaic). Generating your own electricity is a fantastic way of lowering electricity bills, reducing your carbon footprint and also promoting a more positive message for the surrounding environment. 

The PV panels are efficient enough to be able to produce almost 200W/m2, and unlike other on site generating plant there will be no space impact on the building itself

Being able to introduce cost effective, environmentally friendly and sustainable heat and power solutions is at the forefront of what Myriad do.


Heating Systems For Hotels and Leisure Facilities

The UK’s leisure industry is booming. Although, as your business grows, so too do your business’ energy needs. Myriad offers hotel businesses a cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative to the traditionally used ‘off-gas’ systems:

Hotels, leisure complexes, golf clubs and community centres are often ‘off-gas’, resulting in very costly oil/LPG bills – which are further propelled by the constant use of heating, at all hours.

Renewable heating systems, such as Biomass boilers and Heat Pumps both offer a simple way to make huge reductions to your business’ heating bills, whilst still benefitting from a reliable source of heating and hot water for you and your guests.

Renewable systems can heat all the guest rooms simultaneously, ancillary buildings and even your leisure facilities such as swimming pools and gyms.


Biomass Vs Heat Pumps for heating

  • Water temperature: Heat pumps can provide heating water very efficiently but the temperatures tend to be lower than that acheivable from Biomass boilers. There are developments in heat pump technology to increase the temperatures but if temperatures above 70degC are needed then a Biomass boiler is really the only cost effective solution.
  • OPEX: Fuel Costs: The fuel costs for a wood chip biomass boiler are similar to the fuel costs for a gas boiler and a heat pump at between 3-4p/kWh. Wood pellet boilers are about 20% more expensive to run.
  • OPEX: Service Costs: The ongoing servicing costs for a biomass boiler are more than those for a heat pump. These higher costs are usually far outweighed by the lower Capital cost of the biomass boiler system.
  • CAPEX: A biomass boiler installation is approximately £500-750/kW installed, whereas a heat pump can bet between 700-£1,200/kW
  • Low Emissions: The local emissions from a heat pump are effectively zero (as they are driven from electricity) although the total emissions are related to the grid emissions. The Myriad range of Biomass boilers do burn their wood pellets/chips cleanly and efficiently, which keeps the systems near to carbon neutral and produces very low emissions.
