What we do

Leisure Energy is an award winning sector leading energy saving consultancy. We work with a range of organisations helping them understand their 24 hour energy usage and manage it more efficiently. Our unique energy management approach:

  • Maximises a building’s performance through improved energy management, monitoring and effective controls
  • Reduces consumption of utilities – water, electricity & gas
  • Saves on energy costs
  • Raises awareness of energy efficiency through installation of energy conservation measures (ECM)
  • Improves internal environmental conditions for customers and staff
  • Lowers the carbon footprint!

We specialise in the energy management of leisure centres, whether existing or new build, but we also work in the hospitality and education sectors, in particular where they have swimming pools.

Energy is the second highest overhead for leisure centres

Leisure centres have a unique energy footprint: demands are high over long hours of operation, especially those facilities with swimming pools, and is the leisure operator’s second highest cost. This, coupled with fluctuating utility prices caused by world and financial events, can result in a high degree of uncertainty and a significant cost pressure on the bottom line.

Of the 5,000 or so leisure centres in the UK, over 3,000 of them are over 20 years old and are likely not to be energy efficient. The Carbon Trust have estimated if leisure centres could reduce their energy consumption by 10% this would result in a saving of £70m that could be used to make our communities ‘more active, more often’.


carbon tonnes to be saved per annum

Completed Project

Wales: Work was completed earlier in 2020 at 5 leisure facilities in Swansea. The ECM’s  installed include new LED lighting in selected areas at each centre, replacement air handling units and solar thermal systems. The carbon savings are estimated in the region of 469 tonnes per annum.


GBP of annual savings

Completed project

Derbyshire Dales: Leisure Energy has recently completed energy upgrade works at Arc Leisure Matlock and Bakewell Leisure Centre. These upgrades included LED lighting and new showers within the pool area at Arc and a new air handling unit at Bakewell.  Estimated annual savings will result in the equivalent of 13,548 showers, CO2 emissions from 31 cars and the power from 566 LCD televisions per year

tonnes of CO2 saved per annum

Completed project

Powys County Council: Completed works to a value of £209,000 at Brecon Leisure Centre are bringing in annual energy savings of 21% for electricity and 18% for gas. This equates to annual saving of £23,357 at this centre.
