Strategic Energy Partnership for University of Chester

Chester UniversityTogether with our partner Gleeds Advisory, we helped the University to procure a Strategic Energy Partnership (SEP) for its Thornton Science Park by an OJEU tendering process. The selected Energy Services Company (ESCO) is to be responsible for the design and construction of extensive new infrastructure works and the installation of energy conservation measures in buildings, all of which will be supported by energy performance guarantees.

This is an exciting project as the infrastructure solutions need to integrate with developments on the 63-acre site which are centred on developing smart grids

The University has separately appointed contractors to develop an Intelligent Energy System Demonstrator Project. This will support energy research and testing of power generating, distribution and energy saving technologies.

The intention is for the whole of the Science Park to become a smart grid demonstrator project making use of combined heat and power generation, energy storage systems (thermal and electrical), and other renewables solutions. The ESCO contract will be flexible to combine a normal commercial approach to delivering overall cost reductions whilst incorporating the site’s ongoing innovative developments as well as meeting a requirement to provide a training and learning interface for students.
