British Embassy – FCO Estate Brasilia Commercial Solar Water HeatingHarry
As a forward looking and outward-facing Government department, the FCO, Foreign and Commonwealth Office strives to walk the talk of its climate diplomacy around the world. To underpin this, Future Perfect is an ambitious long-term plan to convert the fleet to lower emission vehicles, extending the use of commercail solar water heating to better manage energy consumption globally; enabling the FCO to operate a sustainable, low carbon and cost effective overseas estate platform.
Ten buildings on the FCO Brasilia estate have had commercial solar water heating systems installed, generating the majority of the buildings hot water requirements. The LSP20+ Premium Commercial Solar Panel was chosen across the estate. The panel configuration was 4 x 2m² vertical solar collectors. These were heating our New, Unique High Powered Super Coils, on stratification solar tanks which can reach a maximum temperature of 95°.

In order to address the threat from climate change, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office has made tackling the global threat of Climate Change, and taking a global leadership role, part of its Foreign Policy Priorities. The FCO is determined that all aspects of its operations at home and overseas should be managed sustainably. It is working to ensure that environmental considerations are at the heart of the way the FCO is run. Not only is this necessary to provide support and credibility to the policy goal of promoting a low carbon, high growth global economy, but it is also essential if they are to meet their legal obligations and wider government targets on the sustainability of the government estate. The UK Government are therefore committed to continual improvement in their environmental performance, protecting the environment, preventing pollution and minimising to the extent reasonably practicable adverse environmental impacts.
