Unique renewable energy company chooses Nottingham as its European HQ

A company specialising in unique waste water heat recovery systems that deliver a sustainable energy source to commercial and multi occupancy residential buildings, has selected Nottingham as the location for its new UK and European operations.

SHARC Energy Systems is pioneering the introduction of environmentally-friendly solutions for heating, cooling and hot water by bringing to the UK the market-leading technology developed by one of Canada’s foremost providers of sustainable alternative energy source systems, International Wastewater Heat Exchange Systems Inc. (IWHES), based in Vancouver.

SHARC Energy Systems is the trading name of IWWS (UK) Limited and the company has its official UK launch on the 3rd June 2014 at Nottingham Trent University’s Old Chemistry Theatre.

The IWHES system is unique and the first Sewage Heat recovery system to market in Canada, where the company is voted as one of the top 10 companies to watch in 2014.

The SHARC system is ideal for commercial and multi occupancy residential properties and buildings, such as hospitals, schools, student accommodation, leisure centres, retail developments, shopping centres and multi-site and occupancy residential developments, whether as a new build or retrofit installation.

The company’s CEO Russ Burton explains: “The SHARC Energy waste water technology utilises a unique clog-proof raw sewage filtration system and Heat Exchange technology that conducts the heat from untreated wastewater.

“Nottingham is identified as the ideal central location for the UK and European operations for the company. We have plans to create a dedicated manufacturing plant here, creating skilled jobs in the region too. The company will be a flagship alternative energy organisation for the region and the UK, which can only be good news for Nottingham and the East Midlands as a whole.
