Case study: Grimsby Town Football Club

They are known for playing in black and white but now Grimsby Town Football Club has gone green by cutting its energy use.

The club has worked with Smart Energy Greater Lincolnshire to help cut their carbon emissions.

An old heating system at Blundell Park stadium has been replaced with a new, highly-efficient zonal controlled one with the help of grant funding from the project.

Their new heating system is much more efficient which means the team will not only be warmer but the stadium will cost less to heat.

The Smart Energy Greater Lincolnshire programme awarded a 38% grant of £33, 603 towards the cost of the new heating system.

Nick Dale, stadium Manager for Grimsby Town, said:

“As a business, we wanted to be more energy efficient and reduce our carbon footprint.

“We got in touch with Smart Energy Greater Lincolnshire to help us and as a result, we have a new system which is going to dramatically reduce our bills.

“The work has had a really positive response from everyone at the club as all of the rooms in the building now get warm.

“As a football club at the heart of the Grimsby community, we hope our example will inspire other businesses to reduce their energy consumption and their carbon footprint and help save the planet.”
