Holmes Halls, based in Hull, specialize in chrome and vegetable tanning of bovine hides.

Holmes Halls approached Smart Energy Greater Lincolnshire to help them to reduce their carbon emissions and to support them into becoming more energy efficient.

As this is a unique site, the programme’s experts, IfaS, conducted an onsite intensive audit so they could understand the processes, look into the equipment and assess the onsite operations. From this, a tailored report was produced with a range of recommendations.

After receiving their report, Holmes Hall decided to invest in a steam boiler, as they had an old, worn boiler that was inefficient. To help them invest in a boiler, Smart Energy awarded a 38% grant of £9,499.62.

The total investment will be paid back within 4.3 years.

Holmes Halls, said:

“We enjoyed excellent advice from Smart Energy and their European partners, the grant process worked smoothly and we have a roadmap of further energy saving projects going forward”.

Holmes Halls is one of the many businesses who are benefiting from the Smart Energy Greater Lincolnshire programme. If you are looking to save money on your energy bills, get in touch today to see if your business is eligible.
