Data Centres Are Turning to CHP to Cut Costs

The information and communications technology (ICT) sector predicts to use 20 percent of all the world’s electricity by 2025 and emit up to 5.5 percent of all carbon emissions.

Data centres use vast amounts of electricity to keep up with the computing power required for even a single data floor, before the infrastructure of the cooling system is even considered. It is imperative to maintain optimal climate conditions for data centres to function efficiently and to prevent any risk of overheating and outage, hence the important nature of an effective cooling system.

Data centres are only going to scale up in the years to come, further driving up running costs and utility bills. So imagine if there was a solution to produce cheaper electricity and benefit from a more efficient way to cool equipment. Better still, a reliable, affordable power source that helps to reduce carbon footprint. Enter CHP.

Introducing CHP – The Future of Datacentre Power Infrastructure?

CHP is a proven and reliable power source, and in the current climate, with businesses under pressure to reduce costs, the ability to create electricity on-site is hugely attractive given how cost-effective it is, especially when compared to relying on the ever increasingly unreliable, National Grid.

Combined Cooling Heat & Power Systems (CCHP), also known as Tri-Generation is the process of generating electricity and heat. Due to the limited traditional heat demands within Data Centres the Low Temperature Hot Water generated is converted to chilled water. This chilled water is essential for data centres as it can provide an abundance of cool air that can be utilised in server rooms.

In order to transfer the hot water from the generator into valuable cool thermal energy the CCHP system will include an absorption chiller. There are various types of absorption chillers.

The operational principle remains similar on all systems.

  • For a low pressure system absorption fluid is evaporated. By evaporating the heat it is removes heat from the chilled water.
  • Heat in the form of 90°C LTHW from the Generator is used to regenerate the Absorption solution.
  • Thus chilled water is generated and fully utilised in place of electric chillers.

This process ensures all the energy from the Generator is captured and utilised, while offsetting a significant amount of electrical power data centres would otherwise use to generate chilled water via electric chillers.

Investing in CHP to Power a Data Centre

CHP has the potential to reduce Data Centre utility bills by up to 40%. For those looking for a quick ROI, payback is delivered in less than three years based on a 40% saving.

To help run your Data Centre more efficiently, CHP will ensure that the Data Centre uses more of the power produced on site, when compared to using more traditional power sources such as obtaining power from the national grid, where energy wastage is high as well as unreliable. Furthermore, a Data Centre using CHP will also reduce its carbon footprint as you are relying on gas engines.

A More Reliable Power Source

CHP can provide increased resilience and energy security to Data Centres along with significantly reduced energy costs. Having a CHP as part of your power infrastructure increases system efficiencies and sustainability. When combined with traditional UPS and backup diesel generators as part of a microgrid, this can ensure a failsafe solution to an industry that cannot compromise on energy security.

Data Centre Reliant on CHP

Opting for natural gas fuelled power generation, reduces carbon footprint, which is important to many organisations wary of environmental concerns. Gas powered CHPs can assist Data Centres in not only addressing energy costs but have a major impact on reducing CO2 emissions.

In addition to this, surplus energy produced on site can be sold back to the grid, providing a new revenue stream for your business.

As a specialist in CHP and having delivered thousands of power solutions to the financial and data centre sectors, Shenton Group is on hand to assess the commercial and technical needs of your CHP or microgrid solution, as well as implement the technology. Our team of experts maintain CHP, generators and UPS systems across the UK, so you can trust us as your energy infrastructure partner, and reap the rewards of using a more reliable and cleaner source of energy.

Key Benefits of CHP

  • Reduce carbon footprint
  • Reduce energy costs
  • Reduce or eliminate dependence on the Grid
  • Continuous Power Supply
  • Increased energy security
  • Free cool thermal bi-product

Marcus Dodworth, Key Account Manager, specialising in large scale and Biogas CHP projects left on a high after completing 13 years of service at Shenton Group! Known for his meticulous attention to detail, sense of humour and love of flying planes, Marcus now spreads his wings once again, starting up a new venture within the industry. 

We thank Marcus for all of his hard work and dedication over the years. Being a keen pilot, Marcus was presented with a Shenton Group branded hand made model plane to commemorate his time with the team. Marcus was overwhelmed with the gesture. 

We asked Marcus what he would miss…

“Lots. Where to start … if I had to name one – probably the open culture that enables you to have very frank conversations even at the highest level of management, and to know that you’ll always be listened to.”

How have you found working within the Shenton team?

“It has been a great experience from start to finish. I had the opportunity to work alongside a group of professional and dedicated people, with a real passion for what we do. The collective level of capability across the whole company is significant.”

What have you enjoyed?

“The culture of the company is very much work-hard / play-hard, so I really enjoyed some of the recreational stuff that we’ve done together.

Also, the opportunity to travel to a number of different countries for work has been great fun.”

Marcus, very driven and business proud, has shared a lot of knowledge over the years and secured countless biogas CHP projects. He has educated many and provided a lot of value to the team. We thank you once again for all that you have done for Shenton Group, and we wish you the very best of luck in the future!

National Grid Warns Electricity to Be in Short Supply in the Next Few Days

For the second time in recent weeks, National Grid has warned that the nation’s electricity will be in short supply over the next few days. We look into the reasons why, what is being done about it and an example of a business we support, who are prepared for any energy shortfall.

What Are the Factors Causing the Shortfall?

National Grid took to Twitter to put out a warning that ‘unusually low wind output’, import and export levels and a number of generator outages has led to them operating with a reduced spare capacity.

Since the above tweets, National Grid has tweeted ‘that margins remain adequate today, and we’re continuing to monitor the situation for tomorrow and the weekend’. Keep updated with the latest from National Grid.

The current shortfall follows on from the mid-September warning where the official statement released by National Grid announced it’s ‘buffer’ of power reserves have dipped below 500MW, and that it potentially needed assistance from more power plants to prevent a blackout.

Dealing with Oversupply

The National Grid more often finds itself dealing with oversupply as opposed to shortfalls, which pose just as much of a problem, as it can threaten to overwhelm the grid when the demand for electricity is low.

Wind farms have been paid to switch off, EDF Energy was told to halve nuclear generation at one of their plants, and as demand fell by over a quarter during lockdown the National Grid spent £1bn on extra measures to prevent blackouts due to oversupply.

Although rare over the past few years, the recent increase in power related issues does raise the question for many UK business owners and organisations about the reliability of the National Grid, and what the options are to cover themselves in the event of a blackout.

Securing a Reliable Power Supply For Our Client Blue Frontier

Blue Frontier is one client who turned to Shenton Group seeking out a standby power system to make sure they are able to remain operational, even during a blackout. With the National Grid at risk from both short supply and oversupply, more and more organisations are futureproofing and looking to alternate and reliable power sources.

Following on from two power outages, Blue Frontier sought a solution so that staff could continue to work and the business could continue to charge their hourly rate for their services in IT support, web design and development and digital marketing, without issue. The cost of being without power for any business is huge, as is the reputational impact if services are not available to paying clients.

Power Continuity Solutions Delivered With Minimal Disruption

As is the goal for most Shenton Group clients, Blue Frontier wanted a cost effective solution that would have minimal disruption to the day-to-day running of the business. The technical experts from Shenton Group visited the Salisbury office to conduct an assessment and to figure out a bespoke solution to meet the exact requirements.

Shenton Group is a solution provider offering turnkey packages and complete support for their clients. In the instance of the Blue Frontier project, the infrastructure team arrived on site out of hours meaning no disruption to the daily operations. The team at Blue Frontier are now able to keep the lights on even when the mains supply is off, allowing them to continue to support their own clients.

Colleague Of The Month September 2020

Shenton Group has been working around the clock throughout the pandemic providing support to clients of national importance. We have engineers all over the country that have been protecting organisations from power outages. And it has been our top priority to reduce the risk of any further disruption, from what 2020 has already thrown at us. 

When things are busy or times are difficult, it can be easy to get caught in the rush. Things can get overlooked and forgotten. We use ‘Colleague Of The Month’ is a time to pause, reflect and give thanks to members of the team that have been putting in the extra mile. 

Celebrate Your Team

As a company, we understand that to keep a team strong and headed in the right direction, it is important to listen and celebrate great work. After all, behind every great team stands great individuals. This brings us to congratulate Tom O’Malley, one of our Service Engineers that covers Scotland and the North!

No one can deny that Tom O’Malley has put in the extra miles. He recently travelled 254 miles to visit a client in Stornoway from Edinburgh, a 7-hour trip one way! 

Working During COVID19

COVID19 has affected every business in one way or another. As expected, some of our engineers had to shield, but this is where we saw engineers like Tom step up. Longer journeys to clients and longer shifts really highlighted the dedication of our team.

We asked Tom about his experience of working throughout COVID19:

” It has been difficult travelling between England & Scotland with different rules; it was a bit confusing at times, along with the constant threat of COVID19. However, I have stuck firmly to the government guidance, socially distanced and appropriate PPE. It is not the most enjoyable experience to work in these conditions, but we are committed to our clients.”

Colleagues have noted that Tom goes “above and beyond his duty”.

Working for Shenton Group for nearly eight years now, Tom explains what he did before this role:

“Having served my time as a truck technician, I knew that working in a workshop was not for me and wanted to specialise into more big engines work. I worked for a power generation company rebuilding & repairing large engines around the UK and Europe where I got the bug for some paid travel!” 

“I then moved to work offshore carrying out similar works but the standing around and watching Jeremy Kyle for days on end until the chopper arrived became too much to bear, so I left and joined Shenton Group….”

Working At Shenton Group

We asked Tom how he finds working at Shenton Group:

“I’m pretty lucky working for the Generator & CHP Department. I get a lot of variation in my job role from fault finding, engine rebuilds and service work, it’s never dull. It’s a good feeling leaving site with a happy client and a running engine be it a CHP or a standby generator.

Once again Tom, we would like that thank you for all of your hard work and dedication, you are an asset to the team. Enjoy the bottle of bubbly and voucher as a token of our appreciation. 

We are currently recruiting for a number of roles on our careers page. If you would like to join our team, get in touch!

Importance of Regularly Load Bank Testing Diesel Generators

If you are reliant on a diesel generator as a source of backup power, it is essential to conduct regular load bank testing to make sure everything with the generator is in working order.

Having the correct, operational equipment available is often an afterthought until the moment it is required, but with regular diesel generator load testing it is possible to ensure you have a reliable power source in the event of an emergency.

Backup generators for the majority of the time sit dormant, waiting to spring into action when you lose mains power. As a generator sits there, parts naturally age and deposits build up. Just like a car, a generator needs to be started up once in a while to ensure it is in full working order and will offer you that protection when you need it most!

A load bank test simulates a power outage and ensures your backup generator will be reliable at full electrical load. Our skilled engineers test variable electrical demands, under controlled conditions allowing for accurate measuring and reporting. These tests help prolong the life of your generator and allow us to pick up developing issues for maintenance before they become a problem for you.

Load Bank Testing Diesel Generators

Load bank testing should form part of a maintenance programme for any organisation that uses a diesel generator for backup power. We recommend load bank testing at least once a year to ensure reliable performance during power outages.

diesel generator load bank

When running a load bank test, the electrical load is increased to full capacity, which allows the generator to really stretch its legs. All components of the diesel generator are tested when working to their optimal levels, including the cooling systems, which are the most common cause of diesel generator faults.

Aside from pushing the generator to the limit to see if it can handle the real world conditions encountered in an emergency, diesel generators further benefit as load testing removes any build-up of carbon deposits from pistons and exhaust systems. When diesel generators operate below a 30% load, the optimum operating temperature is not reached, which leads to a build up of carbon deposits. A load bank test will push the load to the maximum capacity essentially helping with the upkeep of the diesel generator.

At Shenton Group, our team conduct these detailed health checks as part of the load bank service, to establish if there are any developing faults and ensure that the diesel generator is able to sustain full load output in an emergency situation.

Diesel Generator Load Bank Testing Benefits

  • Detects any coolant problems
  • Checks radiator functionality
  • Identifies carbon deposit build up on key components
  • Benefit from a more reliable diesel generator for when there is a mains outage

Can Businesses Rely on the National Grid to Deliver a Stable Electricity Supply?

Over a year has passed since we posted a news article on our blog following the UK’s most severe blackout in over a decade. Little did we know that just over 12 months later, vast numbers of us would be working from home due to a global pandemic. This in itself has changed the requirements of our power supplies, with many of us working from home and increasing our wifi/data consumption.

However, the National Grid claim their biggest challenge is balancing the supply with the actual demand dropping well below average levels.

Localised Power Cuts

Throughout the summer, locations up and down the country suffered from power outages leaving, residents and businesses in the dark. This has prompted more enquires about back up power solutions, to overcome the instability of the National Grid. Many businesses have already felt the strain with staff on furlough, reduced opening hours and fractured supply chains, and so could do without any additional power problems. 

A quick search on Google News highlights how common and widespread power cuts have become over the summer, affecting residential and commercial customers.


Norwich experienced a power cutback in August where local people woke up to find they were without power as was reported in the Eastern Daily Press. The problem was traced back to be a fault with a piece of electrical equipment, with power restored at 9:30 am.

Andover & Whitchurch

The Basingstoke Gazette reported in June that hundreds of homes were left without power for over three hours, with rural villages and households across Whitchurch disconnected from the National Grid. An SSEN spokesperson said: “We’re sorry for the loss of supply. We currently have a fault. Our engineers are on site working hard to get the power back on as quickly as they can.’


Dorset Police actually benefitted from a power cut in Poole, where SSEN electricians visited a house when there was a power outage after network infrastructure had been interfered with and left damaged. The visiting electricians found cannabis plants and subsequently reported the find to the Police, as covered by the Bournemouth Echo.


The whole town of Kettering suffered from a loss of power on September 24th with lights and TV’s off and the internet going down, leaving those working from home rather stuck.

These local examples are just a drop in the ocean when it comes to power failures as the National Grid continues to run into reliability issues. For people whose livelihood depends on the power being on, backup solutions are something to seriously consider.

We have a range of options for commercial premises to ensure day-to-day business can continue without disruption.

Coronavirus Impact on the Demand for Electricity

Millions of us now rely on electricity more than ever at home, but the National Grid state that we should not be concerned about the electricity supply, suggesting they have all the best procedures in place to manage the effects that the pandemic has had on the electricity supply.

Electricity demand is currently significantly lower than usual, due to a decrease in energy use from commercial and industrial consumers. However, managing a lower demand for electricity is just as difficult as it is to manage the peaks.

According to Current News ‘The pandemic has sent demand in the UK tumbling, with around a 20% drop from this time of year generally. This coupled with soaring renewables production has created challenges for National Grid to keep the grid balanced.’

Capacity Market Notices

Strangely enough, a demonstration of the strain of balancing the demand was the electricity capacity market notice issued on the 15th September.

Capacity Market Notices are an advance signal that there may be less generation available than National Grid Electricity System Operator (ESO) expects to need to meet national electricity demand. The notices flag that the risk of a ‘System Stress Event’ in the electricity network is higher than under normal circumstances.

The Capacity Market Notice instructs generators to be ready to meet the shortfall so that the Electricity System Operator are able to ‘keep the lights on for customers’. Given the notice came during a warm period of weather, it shows how fractious the system currently is.

For those feeling uncomfortable about the shifting demands, frequent outages and struggles with the grid, there are solutions to safeguard the power supply, such as backup generators, USPs and more solutions.

The UK’s ‘decaying electricity network’

National Grid CEO John Pettigrew has warned that Britain could be at risk of power blackouts ‘due to a decaying electricity network’ as cancelled projects mount up. One example reported in the Daily Mail was Sheffield, which relies on two power lines to power the whole city. The £40 million plan was denied by Ofgem, who told The Times newspaper that the National Grid had not demonstrated the need for a replacement.

With plans to spend £10 billion on UK networks now halved, many businesses and organisations need to take steps to protect their power continuity and futureproof their organisations from the issues facing the National Grid.

Staggering Social Media & Cryptocurrency Demands

The technology sector, including Social Media giants Facebook are some of the biggest users of electricity in the modern world.

According to Statista- “Facebook’s electricity consumption has gradually increased over the last years, reaching 3.43 terawatt-hours in 2018. Facebook has set goals to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 75 per cent in 2020.”

The amount of electricity used by Facebook when compared to Bitcoin is dwarfed. Bitcoin is estimated to use 61.76 terawatt-hours (TWh) of electricity per year, which is more than the entire country of Switzerland uses. With the computing power needed for mining Bitcoin, it is crucial to futureproof against the potential struggles of electricity generation.

The landscape is certainly shifting with other new technologies becoming more commonplace such as electric cars and cryptocurrencies as two examples.

To Conclude, How Resilient Is Your Business?

How prepared is your facility, business or organisation for a power outage? The UK is currently going through turbulent times, with workers in limbo between heading back to the office and staying at home, parents concerned about sending children back to school and the hospitality sector waiting for the green light to kick start again.

Power is not always a primary concern until a problem occurs and our reliance on it is plain to see. Our team of engineers and experts have continued to work throughout the pandemic supporting businesses and equipping clients with the correct equipment, ready for them to power on, even when the mains are off. Through the winter months, the demand for power surges and the weather changing for the worse, will only increase the strain on the National Grid even further. Now is the time to review your power continuity plans and get the safety net of backup power or an alternative power supply in place.

Speak to our team of technical experts today about your concerns and shore up your power supplies with Shenton Group.

World Cogeneration Day – Cogeneration Explained by the Experts…

What is Cogeneration?

Cogeneration also known as Combined Heat & Power (CHP) is the process of electrical power generation that captures the by-product (Heat) in the form of Low-Temperature Hot Water, Steam, or chilled water (in tri-generation schemes). Cogeneration is an incredibly efficient process as it uses such a high proportion or all the heat that is generated as a result of the electricity generation. By generating power and thermal energy simultaneously, Cogeneration can reduce carbon emissions as much as 30% in comparison to conventional generation via a boiler and electricity purchased directly from the national grid. 

For Commercial and industrial clients, Cogeneration can offer significant commercial benefits. 

With current utility prices (September 2020 industrial averages), rates of return on Capital Investments can often be under 18-months simple payback. This is due to the Spark Spread (Spark Spread is simply the cost of generating on-site compared to the cost of purchasing utilities and generating thermal energy through traditional means i.e. boilers). 

How Can I Ensure ROI With CHP?

Cogeneration is sized according to site specific thermal and electrical operating profiles. The feasibility reports Shenton Group can deliver on your behalf will assess the benefits of running a thermally led or electrically led system design. We can then review the commercial implications and benefits of each system to determine the most appropriate solution for each individual client’s site. By correctly sizing the cogeneration scheme, it is possible to achieve combined electrical, thermal energy efficiency in excess of 95%. Cogeneration will provide clients a fast return on capital investment. 


Funding Schemes Available For CHP Projects

With current social and economic drivers, Shenton Group can also assist by facilitating introductions for fully funded schemes with little or zero capital investment required by clients. Funded schemes may not offer as attractive savings to an end-user, yet, with zero capital investment required a funded solution could make immediate operational savings allowing sites to focus on core production and processes. 

Cogeneration benefits include:  

  • High Electrical Efficiency
  • High thermal efficiency 
  • Low emissions 
  • Low operational costs 
  • Reduction energy costs 
  • Simple Electricity Production 
  • Greater site resilience 
  • Future-proofing sites from uncontrollable external energy factors 
  • Fast project set up and installation
