A school campus expansion project, initially proposed to provide additional space so that both upper and low school pupils could be accommodated at the same campus. The scope of the project also included the provision of further facilities for students and the local community.
The expansion project generated a requirement for additional energy generation. SAV systems supplied and installed one 15kWe/30kWth LoadTracker CHP units which are able to supply 73% of site heating and hot water demand and 61% of electrical demand.
The system is expected to reduce carbon emissions by 22 tonnes a year, and make a saving of £3,094 a year relative to a conventional mains supply/boiler system, the equivalent of a 22% saving on the school's energy bills.
