Today’s energy landscape is changing fast – bringing new challenges for the education sector. Volatile markets, escalating costs and unremitting demand for supply means that organisations are now under significant pressure to improve their energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions. But where do you start?
Bringing in new energy technologies
Any organisation seeking to optimise its performance has to consider energy efficiency as a priority. Energy technologies such as Combined Heat and Power (CHP) can enable you to take greater control of your energy usage and consumption – lowering bills, improving operational efficiency and reducing carbon emissions.
Combined Heat and Power from Centrica Business Solutions
Combined Heat and Power (CHP), also known as cogeneration, is designed to generate usable electricity onsite and also recover the majority of the heat created during the generation process – significantly reducing energy wastage. Typically, CHP from Centrica Business Solutions is able to deliver an efficiency increase of anything up to 25% compared to the separate energy systems it replaces.
The benefits of CHP:
• A stable and secure supply
CHP gives you a reliable energy supply that can keep your facility running, regardless of power outages and surges in demand.
• Lower running costs
CHP can reduce your site’s energy costs by up to 25%, enabling you to divert the savings to other priority areas.
• Stronger compliance
CHP can help you reduce your energy consumption and emissions, supporting your compliance efforts.
• Reduce your energy consumption
By generating your own usable electrical power on-site, you reduce your reliance on power from the local grid.
• Gain capital payback within 3-5 years
The energy savings you make with CHP, generating both usable energy and heat for your organisation, equal the cost of installation within five years.
