Merseyside air-conditioning and ventilation specialist, Everkool, has partnered up with the University of Liverpool in a bid to reduce its own and its clients’ carbon emissions.
Bootle-based Everkool provides HVAC (heating, ventilation and air-conditioning) to a variety of businesses within the city region including St John’s Shopping Centre, Epic Hotels, Iliad and Merseytravel.
The research partnership will form part of Everkool’s wider strategic development and future growth plans to help businesses become more energy efficient through the use of alternative energy resources.
The company plans for greater investment into ground source and air source heat pumps. Craig Greenwood, Everkool chief executive, said: “We are extremely proud to have partnered with the University of Liverpool, a world-leading institution, to advise us on our future green energy plans.
“Their research has been invaluable to us in guiding our strategy going forward. The air-conditioning and ventilation industry is ever changing and new technologies are often breaking through.
“This is very important to us. As companies across the board look to reduce carbon emissions and look to find alternative energy sources, this partnership
will be of significant benefit to us as we look to help companies fulfil this objective.”
Rob Capleton, University of Liverpool industrial relations manager, added: “We reached out to Everkool as part of our initiative to help industry leading businesses within the Liverpool city region reduce their carbon emissions.
“The research for Everkool will better equip the company with the knowledge of new emerging technology, enabling them to make more informed strategic decisions as they look to improve the carbon footprint of businesses throughout the region.”
