TOPIC: CHP ?? Are you are user or a loser !!

CHP ?? Are you are user or a loser !! 4 months, 3 weeks ago #1

UK universities and colleges spend over £200 million a year on energy, most university’s energy bills are well over £1 million a year so any reduction means significantly more money for core educational objectives.

The ability to provide efficient, low-carbon heat, cooling and electricity is of increasing importance in a world of rising energy costs.

Generating your own energy through Combined Heat and Power (CHP) is one of the most cost-effective ways to reduce energy bills and carbon emissions.
Are you currently looking into, or currently delivering a CHP project ? (If so share your experience)

If not why not ???

We are currently procuring a CHP that will feed just under 300 flats in Romford and in this context a CHP works well and is cost effective.

However we have a second scheme in Romford of 70 units and to achieve the 20% renewables target we are being forced down the CHP route despite it not being cost effective as our client team do not like the other options such as air source heat pumps due to the bad press they have had over the years. All other options (no room for PV) are being considered but despite the cost a CHP is looking the only viable option.

Have Micro CHP’s been a success and are they cost effective in small housing schemes?
