Continuous Power Specialist Spearheads CHP For Housing Developments
As the UK’s National Grid falters and the country’s housing development market continues to gather pace, Hampshire-based shentongroup is helping to provide Combined Heat and Power Solutions that protect residents from mains power failure, whilst providing cheaper, greener energy that meets level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes.
A number of respected bodies have further highlighted problems facing the UK’s reserve power levels. Centrica very publicly warned of a ‘looming gap’ in UK energy supplies, and new research by Bircham Dyson Bell projects that, with some 25GW of generating capacity due to close by 2030, and with few replacement power projects being commissioned fast enough, the country faces what it refers to as ‘a looming energy crunch’.
For the country’s many housing development companies, National Grid energy supplies pose potential instability, and with many developments having to meet the minimum requirements of Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Housing, Combined Heat and Power Supply solutions are one such solution for providing cheaper, greener energy with lower CO2 emissions.
shentongroup, the UK’s leading technical experts in Standby Power, Uninterruptible Power Supplies and Combined Heat and Power Systems, not only provides Combine Heat and Power Systems (CHP) for housing developments throughout the country, but also provides specifiers and developers with a library of free technical resources to enable them to better understand the processes, specifications, options and requirements of any successful CHP project. One of 40 professional, real-life case studies available on shentongroup’s website is “Combined Heating and Power Systems for New Housing Development in Surrey” which examines how shentongroup provided two CHP systems that generate electricity and hot water from cheaper natural gas supplies for 169 dwellings across 8 housing blocks.
shentongroup’s Phil Chilton commented: “Our Surrey CHP case study clearly demonstrates our processes and the benefits and outcomes of Combined Heat and Power systems in housing developments. With 39 more case studies covering various industry applications, and an array of white papers to help specifiers understand the finer points of CHP projects, we hope that our website resources serve as a valuable reference point for all those working within the continuous power, building services and property development sectors”.
