The Department of Energy and Climate Change (“DECC”) wishes to appoint a supplier to undertake qualitative research exploring the barriers and enablers for industrial heat recovery. The purpose of this research is to build upon an earlier study by Element Energy to further develop our evidence base in the area of industrial recovered heat.
The potential of high efficient combined heat and power (CHP) for 2030 is more than twice the current installed capacity. Besides the large primary energy saving CHP will provide, it can save annually up to 14 Million ton CO2. Furthermore, it is expected that the share of renewable CHP will increase further, as it did last year.
Delta-ee latest research forecasts that the value of the global micro-CHP market will reach €3.2 billion in 2019, up from €0.9 billion in 2014. Fuel cells are driving the growth of the global market.
The Chancellor today confirmed that commercial and industrial energy consumers which use highly efficient combined heat and power plants will receive relief from Carbon Price Support starting from April 2015.
Cheltenham General Hospital officially opened its newly revamped energy centre which will save Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust over £10 million and reduce carbon emissions by over 32,000 tonnes over the next 18 years.
Ofgem published today the revised ECO lifetimes tables, click through for a summary of changes.
Statistics relating to the Code for Sustainable Homes (the Code) show the number of dwellings that have been certified to the standards set out in the Code Technical Guide, in which local authority area, at which Code level and whether the homes are registered as private or public sector homes.
Updated figures from DECC show that in the past year, micro CHP installations registered to the Microgeneration Certificate Scheme now exceed 600 units.
This is a competitive funding scheme to support the development and demonstration of state of the art technologies, products and processes in the areas of energy efficiency, power generation, heat and electricity storage and carbon capture and storage (CCS).
Ofgem has today set out plans for five out of the six companies that run Britain’s local electricity network. This decision will see the companies spend around £17 billion to renew, maintain the electricity network and connect small-scale renewable generation. Taken together with Western Power Distribution which had its price controls agreed early, the total spend on Britain’s local electricity network over the next eight years will be £24 billion.
Three influential directors representing district heating, combined heat and power and demand side energy services were welcomed as the latest industry representatives on to the CHPA board today.
Could storage hold the key to long-term electricity supply? Is under-sea transport of electricity between the UK and other countries reliable? What role can demand management play in providing resilience? These are some of the questions to be put to a range of experts on energy issues by the Lords Science and Technology Committee on Tuesday 2 December.
Companies developing cutting edge low carbon energy projects in generation, efficiency and storage - such as capturing carbon emissions or turning buildings into power stations - have the chance to bid for an extra £5 million of funding in the fourth round of the Government’s Energy Entrepreneurs’ Fund (EEF).
Seventeen local energy projects from across Scotland have been awarded funding to support the development of green energy schemes, Energy Minister Fergus Ewing announced today.
The Devonport Energy from Waste Facility construction site has been presented with a Bronze Award at this year’s Green Apple Environment Awards. The award was given to MVV Environment Devonport as the company behind the project.
CHPA members are cordially invited to attend a FREE debate ‘The Future of Urban Heat’ which is taking place on Thursday, 4 December at London’s Prospero House, SE1 from 5.30pm.
Big businesses are paying for five power stations worth of electricity each year they don’t need. However even reducing their energy consumption by 1 per cent could save over £250 million on their energy bills annually.
Thomas Briault and Stuart Allison from Arup explore our tendency to over-simplify how we think about the price of heat, and show some findings from recent work which shed light on the facts behind the figures.
Ceramic Fuel Cells Limited (ASX/AIM: CFU) is pleased to announce the commencement of the first fully funded BlueGEN programme, where the BlueGEN is installed at no cost to the end user. The programme, comprising a 100kW fleet of BlueGENs (a minimum of 65 units) is targeted primarily at public sector organisations that can take advantage of the significant carbon and energy savings BlueGEN has to offer.
Borough of Poole has been awarded funding to investigate the possibility of implementing heat networks which could provide cheaper heat to homes and businesses in Poole.
