Study involved data collation and building profiling in order to establish energy consumption patterns across the University’s city centre campus. Renewables feasibility study included the technical and financial appraisal of solar PV and wind turbines, however, CHP and district heating were identified as the preferred option. Study was then expanded into a full business case covering NPV analysis, full risk assessment and development of a project plan for implementation. Support provided to key contractors during initial stages of project.
Determination of most carbon and cost effective solution. Support to University in establishing team of contractors to implement project. The CHP is now installed and successfully operating whilst playing a key role in teaching and research. The CHP is housed in an observation gallery/teaching area which supports knowledge and technology transfer, enabling courses in the University’s School of Engineering and Built Environment to gain accreditation by the Energy Institute.
