Renewable Energy at Nuffield Place

In 2019, we upgraded the electrical works at Nuffield Place to become greener with our energy use. The upgrade was necessary to ensure the smooth running of the new renewable energy biomass boiler at Nuffield Place and create opportunities for new visitor facilities in future.

We removed two oil fired boilers from Nuffield Place to make way for the new biomass boiler. The original oil fired boiler was installed in the 1930’s/40s and heated Nuffield Place for roughly 50 years.

This project is part of the National Trust’s Renewable Energy Investment (REI). It includes the aim to source 50 per cent of our overall energy from renewables by 2020, reducing our reliance on, and the effect of fossil fuels. Nuffield Place’s contribution is 0.13% with 92,138KwH of generated heat.
