There are various different benefits to making the switch from oil to gas for your business. Firstly, LPG is a lower-carbon alternative to oil with approximately a 20% lower carbon intensity. As it does not contain sulphur, LPG is also cleaner burning fuel than oil.* 

LPG offers significant reductions in NOx and SOx emissions compared to other conventional fuels. Furthermore, LPG combustion emits almost no Particulate Matter (PM). 

Unlike oil, it’s not easy to decant LPG from a bulk storage tank, reducing the risk of fuel theft.  

If you’re switching from oil to gas, you could expect potential cost savings. 

Convenience and security are further benefits, considering you will no longer require oil deliveries or need to monitor your levels. Flogas owns your gas tank and they will ensure the tank is properly maintained.   

Similarly, the auto ordering service on offer from Flogas will guarantee that you never run out and don’t have the stress of placing orders  it’s a completely free service and operates via automatic monitoring of tank levels. This is further supplemented by security of supply, with Flogas providing a nationwide delivery network. 

Flogas ensures that there is minimal downtime for your operation during the switching service — take a look at some of the various businesses that we’ve helped transition from oil to gas, including Pat Munro, one of the largest privately owned contractors in the Scottish Highlands. 

Finally, switching from oil to gas can help you meet your CCA targets if you are enrolled on the schemeto ensure you get a discount on your Climate Change Levy. 

 

Flogas - Why Switch Thumbnail

Existing as cleaner and more efficient energy sources compared to high carbon fossil fuels such as coal and oil, LPG and LNG can potentially save you money on your fuel bill and on your Climate Change Levy charges 

A low-carbon alternative to oil, LPG burns with approximately 20 percent less carbon intensity than oil and also does not contain sulphur*. Similarly, LPG is compatible with a wide variety of modern heating systems and technologies, meaning the switch is hassle-free. 

In order to make an oil to gas conversion and benefit from a reduction in your carbon footprint, contact Flogas today 

Once you’ve specified an interest in making the switch, a site survey will be conducted, during which a team of qualified engineers will analyse the current system you have in place before drafting a plan bespoke to the needs of your operation. Once this solution has been established, the team will then detail the savings you can expect to make with the new gas-powered system in place, before taking you through the full range of finance options on offer.  

When a plan has been agreed, the team will get to work.

Businesses which are still using oil, whether that be kerosene, gas oil, or HFO, for industrial processes, heating, or production, can switch to LPG or LNG and reap the benefits.  

The process is one that is both quick and simple, and by contacting Flogas to help with the switch, you’ll receive continued support as your equipment is replaced with minimal downtime.  

The oil to gas conversion switch will begin with a site survey where a full analysis of your current system is conducted. From then, the team will get to work, and your energy savings will soon begin.  

Flogas’ in-house team will design, manage, install, and commission the entire system, ensuring all electricals, controls, civils, and maintenance is project managed through our technical team. With a dedicated account manager, you will have a contact throughout the entire switching process. 

If you are still using oil as the main energy source for your business, it is more than likely you’re paying more than you should be. Make the switch from oil to gas,  and you could discover potential cost savings.  

LPG is also highly compatible with a wide variety of heating technologies and systems, and it offers you a supply that you can depend on — a constant supply that means you don’t have to worry about running out.  

Unlike oil, LPG doesn’t contain sulphur, meaning it burns a lot cleaner than other energy sources such as oil. Similarly, LPG produces 20% less carbon dioxide than oil does, meaning your business’ carbon footprint will be smaller*. 

Tamnavulin Distillery in Scotland is just one example of a business who made the switch from oil to gas with Flogas. They made the decision to make the transition following the recognition that the Medium Combustion Plant Directive was going to affect their processes. After switching, Tamnavulin was able to report a 19.7% saving per year on CO2 emissions. Particulate matter was reduced to a level 269 times lower than it was with oil, sulphur dioxide 767 times lower, and nitrogen oxide three times lower. 

Flogas also offers a carbon offsetting initiative, whereby businesses can offset their unavoidable carbon emissions from their gas usage. Flogas will purchase carbon credits on behalf of the business, which are used to invest in sustainable projects across the world. These projects work to either reduce or capture CO2 emissions from other areas, that would have otherwise been released into the atmosphere. Alongside compensating for 100% of carbon emissions, Carbon offsetting supports projects that directly benefit the environment. The whole process is managed for you by Flogas.

In order to determine any potential cost savings and the cost to convert your business from oil to gas, our dedicated team of experts would undertake a site survey to work out your energy requirements and design a bespoke system to meet your business’s needs. They would then give you a proposal covering any emissions and cost savings you could expect when switching from oil to gas.

Oil has, for many years, been the fuel of choice for businesses, but in recent times, LPG has become the obvious choice, as the cleanest conventional fossil fuel.  

LPG is a lower-carbon alternative to oil with approximately a 20% lower carbon intensity.  

LPG offers significant reductions in NOx and SOx emissions compared to other conventional fuels. Furthermore, LPG combustion emits almost no Particulate Matter (PM). 

Any business using oil (Kerosene, gas oil or HFO) for heating, production or industrial processes can benefit from making the switch to LPG or LNG. 

The process is quick and simple, and we’ll support you in replacing your existing equipment, so you can sit back and enjoy the ongoing savings. 

Climate change agreements, or CCAs, are voluntary agreements drafted by UK Industry in conjunction with the Environment Agency to help reduce net energy use and emittance of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, mainly from high energy users. By entering into the agreement, businesses become entitled to discount on the Climate Change Levy. 53 different business sectors across the UK participate in the CCA scheme, from major energy-intensive processes such as chemicals, paper, and supermarkets to agricultural businesses such as intensive pig and poultry farming. The closing date for new applications is 30th September 2020. 

Within the Climate Change Agreement there are two different types of agreements, one being umbrella agreements and the other being underlying agreements.

The Climate Change Agreement is a voluntary scheme entered into by energy intensive businesses in the UK, helping them drive down their energy use and carbon dioxide, in return for a discount on the Climate Change Levy (CCL). CCAs are available to many industry sectors, and the scheme is currently running until 31st March 2023.  

By meeting your CCA targets for emissions reductions, businesses are eligible for the CCL discount.  

Thanks to the fact that LPG and LNG are among the lowest carbon-emitting off grid fuels, making the switch could help to make it easier to achieve your Climate Change Agreement targets. Contact Flogas to find out more today.
