The challenge

The theoretical case for Combined Heat and Power (CHP) is compelling at first sight but unfortunately the reality is often far from ideal and very many installations are not saving the promised money or carbon – although the owners may be blissfully unaware of this!

The service

A Green Consultancy CHP Health Check is a full investment grade investigation of the plant and all factors affecting its efficiency and cost-effectiveness. It provides an in depth analysis of the system, opportunities for improvement, costs and return on investment.

A CHP expert will visit the site to:

  • determine the3450_1pic5-insight15 - - becky thermal performance of the buildings, or other process, in order to establish the thermal load profile
  • compare this with the thermal capacity of the CHP and boiler plant
  • investigate the operation of the system, including waste heat radiator if fitted, effectiveness of modulation, circuit temperatures etc, using data-logging if appropriate
  • consider all operating costs and the contract if the CHP is operated by a third party.

The report will include:

  • recommended remedial measures
  • estimated savings, costs and return on investment
  • other measures to maintain the efficiency of the system
  • any training that staff may need
  • table of prioritised actions.

Our fee for this service depends on the scale and complexity of the system.

District Heating Redesign for University of Bristol

“The Green Consultancy redesigned the District Heating System at our Langford site to dramatically improve its energy efficiency. Their consultant gave a clear and concise explanation of the new design and answered all questions from the team charged with progressively implementing and commissioning the new design in a way that fully inspires our confidence in the results. At last we have someone who understands CHP and thermal stores, rather than having just read about them in a book and made up a design as they go along!”

Dave Baker, Mechanical Building Services Engineer
