Case Studies

Kirklees Council






Kirklees Council covers a variety of districts spread across West Yorkshire. These include Batley, Dewsbury, Huddersfield, and Holmfirth. Kirklees Council is the 13th biggest local authority in the UK in terms of population and the 4th not based on a major city. Having such a high level of
responsibility for West Yorkshire’s adjoining districts, Kirklees Council aspires to record substantial energy savings within its tier.


Kirklees Council continuously updates its environmental policies with new challenges and targets. The Council aims to reduce carbon emissions by 40% by 2020. With specific targets across a range of initiatives both in-house and locally, Kirklees Council aimed to boost its reduced carbon credentials across three of its own buildings, these being Civic Centre 1, Dewsbury Town Hall and Batley Town Hall.


The Powerstar team recommended voltage optimisation systems to be installed in all three buildings to systemically clean, regulate and optimise the incoming voltage.


The installations across the three Kirklees Council buildings took place in November 2010. Powerstar has so far produced an average saving per site of 6.93%. The average annual financial saving experienced by Kirklees Council is £2,705 and the average equivalent carbon not emitted annually is 11.4 tonnes.
