RUMM are delighted to have entered a formal partnering arrangement with the Carbon and Energy Fund (carbonandenergyfund.net).
The Carbon and Energy Fund (CEF) is a £300M+ fund that was originally established to fund and support projects in the NHS in England. However, such has been the success of its approach (it has helped structure energy saving projects in more than 50 Hospitals) that it is expanding its operation to the Public Sector and taking in Wales and Scotland as well.
RUMM are delighted to be involved. The innovative funding model devised and implemented by CEF looks certain to gain more traction in the Public Sector where capital funding appears to be difficult to secure for the foreseeable future yet carbon reduction targets remain.
RUMM believes the CEF model is well placed to provide a solution to this conundrum and we hope we are in a position to help in the delivery of this.
RUMM’s sales director Jamie Watkins is set to run the London Marathon on 13th April this year.
Jamie’s best friend was suddenly hit with blood cancer 4 years ago and was in ICU for 4 weeks, desperately ill and fighting for his life.
He had a long hard battle to recover which he eventually won, thanks to the Anthony Nolan Trust.
Jamie will be running for the Anthony Nolan trust this year which had a huge impact on saving his friends life.
Anthony Nolan is a pioneering charity that saves the lives of people with blood cancer. Every day, they use their register to match remarkable donors willing to donate their blood stem cells to people who desperately need lifesaving transplants.
This is a huge achievement for Jamie, he has been training extremely hard over the last few months, morning, noon, night and in all weather conditions. He has also had to face some tough personal and family issues along the way, but this has not deterred him.
For more on Jamie’s story, please visit Jamie’s just giving page at http://www.justgiving.com/Jamie-London2014
Cancer will have an impact on all of us at some point during our lives whether it is us, family or friends.
We are asking if you can please show your support in beating cancer and donating as much as you possibly can.
The RUMM team would like to congratulate Jamie on his dedication and commitment to this race and we would like him to know that we are extremely proud of him.
We all wish you well for the big day Jamie and as they say….break a leg, we know you are going to “smash it”!!
Celtic Manor Resort – and so our first customer becomes out latest customer
In 2005, when RUMM was formed as a University spinout company, the Celtic Manor became RUMM’s first customer, and now in January 2014 our partnership has been re-established to work together to help reduce the Resort’s carbon footprint and associated running costs. We are delighted to be able to apply our energy saving technology to such a high profile venue and are confident that we can add to the significant savings that have already been achieved. The Celtic Manor Resort has enjoyed significant growth and is a renowned global brand and venue particularly since hosting the 2010 Ryder Cup. Later this year the 2014 NATO Conference will take place at the Celtic Manor, and there are plans to expand the facilities to include more luxury style lodges together with a significant conference venue.
RUMM will design and install the most appropriate energy meters with its own data collection product PULSE to gather and store the “Energy Knowledge”, to be interrogated by our own propriety software IBASS (Internet Based Analytical Software Suite) that provides the “Energy Imagination” for our Energy Account Managers to deliver significant savings.
When the Celtic Manor Resort became our first customer, energy prices were less than half of what they are now. As Celtic Manor expands as a business our task will be to work with them to continually reduce the impact of future price rises through reducing consumption.
RUMM are delighted to have secured an energy management contract with Mettis Aerospace who are based in Redditch, West Midlands. The deal which was signed in January represents a considerable achievement against some stiff competition. Key to securing the work was the complete energy management solution that RUMM can offer together with the resource of its energy management services for the customer to help deliver savings on site. The full energy management solution includes:
- An extensive sub-metering installation of gas, electricity, compressed air, water and effluent
- An Automatic Monitoring and Targeting system (aM&T) utilising RUMM’s own energy savings technology of Pulse and energy management saving software IBASS
- Advanced data analysis to identify areas for savings
- A strong site presence to deliver the improvements in the areas highlighted
- Utilising the Low Carbon Behaviour research that RUMM has sponsored to communicate energy saving performance and provide feedback to all
Mettis Aerospace is a leading global manufacturer of precision-forged and machined components in titanium, aluminium and special steels. It is a highly successful and expanding business which, by its nature, is very energy intensive.
Partnering with Mettis Aerospace is an endorsement of the energy savings achievements that RUMM has already demonstrated in the manufacturing sector. Mettis Aerospace represents another huge opportunity for RUMM to apply its own energy saving technology in the aerospace sector in support of its energy management services and achieve significant savings for a significant new customer.
There is a growing and sustained interest from companies in the international energy management standard ISO50001.
RUMM customers will be in an advanced position to secure this recognition should they wish. Business has felt the benefit of the family of Quality, Environment Management, as well as Health and Safety standards. The systemised approach to energy saving methods and energy saving technology is something that RUMM has developed to achieve significant savings in partnership with its customers.
The ISO50001 approach will, if adopted correctly, save energy and carbon for companies across many sectors but particularly in the manufacturing sector which is where primarily operates.
RUMM gave a joint presentation at the Wales Quality Centre on the ISO 50001 standard, particularly on the energy savings that could be realised in the manufacturing sector through energy saving technologies and the significance of Low Carbon Behaviour in terms of the energy savings that companies could secure.
A copy of the RUMM powerpoint presentation on 50,001, energy saving technology and methodology, and low Carbon Behaviour savings is attached.
