Flogas were invited to investigate an energy-saving solution, and proposed designing a new LPG storage system to replace the existing oil arrangement. This would be able to serve the heating and hot water needs of the hotel, along with the needs of the kitchen.

It is estimated that the conversion project will deliver energy cost savings of £20,000 per annum and also aid the Lords of the Manor’s environmental aims, by reducing the hotel’s carbon emissions by more than 22%.
Paul Thompson, general manager at Lords of the Manor, says: “We’d been using an oil-burning boiler for years, oblivious to the fact that there was an alternative. We were under the impression that oil was the only option, and that the only ways to reduce energy costs were to either switch between oil suppliers, renegotiate our pricing structure, or cut usage. However, once we became aware of the cost and environmental savings on offer with LPG, the decision was simple.”
Due to the setting of the hotel, and as space was at a premium, Flogas recommended converting the existing oil system and installing an underground LPG system comprising six two-tonne vessels.
"Lords of the Manor is a great example of an off-grid business reaping big financial and environmental benefits, just by making a simple switch from oil to gas. The cost and carbon savings they’ve made speak for themselves, and we’re very pleased to have worked with them to develop a bespoke energy-saving solution that’s delivering such tangible results."
