Man at his desk in office


Offices can often be inefficient due to poor HVAC control and differences in staff requirements. Edge works with companies to ensure comfort levels are maintained with minimal energy outlay.

Care facility


Care facilities are often high energy users due to the need for raised internal temperatures. Edge provides solutions for minimising energy usage whilst maintaining comfort levels.

Residential housing development


Developers are obliged to include renewable technologies as part of their designs. Edge assists in maximising energy generation in new buildings, and developing hybrid systems that combine energy from different sources.

Child writing in book at school


Schools can be challenging environments to heat efficiently – ageing buildings and equipment mean large fuel bills. Edge employs the latest heating technology to lower fuel costs to the absolute minimum.

Factory worker


Industrial processes usually use or produce heat, either through mechanical work or combustion. Edge implements heat recovery systems to capture heat that is otherwise lost to atmosphere.
