The challenge

Following growing demand for their fabulous craft beers, the brewery has stepped up its operations and moved to a bigger, bespoke site called Springwell.

Springwell will see North Brewing Co double its capacity and open a new 500-person taproom, in a move that will co-locate the firm’s bar and brewery headquarters under one roof. The new 21,000 sq ft site will also see the firm’s brewing output increase to 16,000 hectolitres (or a staggering 2.8 million pints a year!)

With an operation of vast scale and output, the new site’s energy consumption will inevitably be much greater than at the former, much smaller brewery.

To help the new headquarters operate as sustainably as possible, North Brewing Co was given a range of our sustainable technology service options, including renewable energy procurement, EV Charging and Solar PV installation and Voltage Optimisation to improve Springwell’s energy efficiency and lower its carbon use.
