Earlier this month it was reported that National Grid emergency blackout costs have spiralled a further £113m, from £17.5m to almost £150m, following ageing coal plants being offered deals to ‘stay warm’ in case of emergencies. And so the ongoing saga surrounding National Grid reliability issues continues. However, Bristol and London are two cities increasingly asserting their independence from uncertain National Grid electricity supplies by utilising Combined Heat and Power.

Screen-Shot-2015-09-29-at-12.24.35 (1)Having committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2050, Bristol’s newly-elected mayor, Marvin Rees, has recently given the go-ahead to build a low-carbon district heating network, connected to a number of energy centres, including Combined Heat and Power plants. Also, London’s Docklands area was in the news this week. It’s 40-acre Royal Wharf site will see low-carbon energy supplied to power 20,000 residents, thanks to a new Combined Heat and Power installation.

Being the sole distributor of the Tedom range of Combine Heat and Power systems, shentongroup is reacting to an increase in demand from organisations that demand reliable power supplies and that have a need for high volumes of hot water. Generating electricity from cheaper natural gas, biogas and LPG, CHP systems harness the heat generated from this process to produce hot water. Therefore, CHP is ideal for housing developments, hotels, universities, leisure centres and large employers.

Natural gas powered CHP unit for Leisure CentresHaving successfully delivered countless CHP systems to organisations throughout the UK, it is with great pleasure that shentongroup announces the arrival of the new Quanto range of larger Tedom CHP units. Extending to the Quanto M10000 CHP system, with electrical outputs of circa 10,426kW and heat outputs of 9,825kW, larger organisations will undoubtedly benefit from cheaper, more efficient power supplies, operating independently from the National Grid.
