IKEA

Space: 32,500 sq meters

Boiler: 1200kW Gilles boiler

Storage: 24 tonne containerised storage unit.

Annual Environmental Savings: over 280 tonnes of CO2

Ikea is committed to being an environmentally responsible company. Balcas Energy supplies their 1200kW Gilles boiler with a constant supply of wood pellets. On average IKEA uses 233 tonnes of Balcas Energy wood pellets each year. The cost of this in oil (priced at £0.60 per litre) would have equated to £68,500, saving the company £29,356 per year.
