We are in Stage 1 of a renewables feasibility study
AS PART OF OUR PROGRAM TO REDUCE OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT, WE’VE INSTALLED A CIRCULATORY HEATING SYSTEM TO RECYCLE OUR HOT WASTEWATER AND HAVE SWITCHED TO 100% RENEWABLE ELECTRICITY, SOURCED WITHIN THE UK. BUILDING ON OUR PROGRESS TO DATE, WE ARE EXPLORING SHORT, MEDIUM AND LONG-TERM ENERGY SOLUTIONS.
In order to build an energy infrastructure for the future, our next actions will tackle weighty issues requiring significant investment and long-term commitment. We are faced with additional complexity compared with our mainland counterparts due to the lack of renewable capabilities on the island. Potential options are being considered with regards to timelines and our on-site energy requirements, knowing that we have many different areas requiring power; including the distillery itself, our warehousing, on-site accommodation including two guest houses, our bottling halls and our Shore House Croft and outbuildings.
Whilst our focus here is to reduce the carbon emissions from our production process, we are also entering discussions with our suppliers to reduce our carbon footprint across our indirect activities.
