Cranbrook DH & CHP breakthroughs 2010

  • £4.1m HCA low carbon infrastructure grant

  • Private sector ESCo proposition

  • Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

  • Skypark commercial development included in scheme

District heating

Homes and commercial buildings

connected by 75 km of heat pipes

  • Energy Centre

  • 1.4 MWe natural gas CHP units and five 4 MWth Natural Gas boilers

  • Two advanced thermal gasification units linked to two 1.4 MWe CHP engines

  • Thermal stores

  • Output Capacity when fully operational 4.2 MW electricity and 25.4 MW heat

  • c 13,000 t /year CO2 savings per year

Cranbrook & Skypark scheme benefits

  • Reduce developers exposure to tightening CO2 standards at little extra cost

  • Demonstration of a private sector ESCo model

  • Biomass CHP using recycled wood

  • ~£45m low carbon investment
