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 Feasibility Study is a full investment grade investigation of all factors affecting efficiency and cost-effectiveness. It provides an in depth analysis of the proposed system, costs and return on investment.

A CHP expert will visit the site to:

  • asse3450_1pic5-insight15 - - beckyss of the existing thermal demands and the efficiency thermal plant in order to establish the thermal load profile of the building or system
  • consider the optimum type and size of CHP unit
  • investigate all operating costs and the contract if the CHP is to be operated by a third party.

For buildings at the design stage, or under construction, these investigations will be based on theoretical figures obtained from analysis of the theoretical heat losses from the building through fabric and ventilation, including consideration of likely hot-water demands.

The report will include:

  • recommendations
  • estimated savings, costs and return on investment
  • table of prioritised actions.

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

CHP feasibility study for Liverpool Heart & Chest Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

“The Green Consultancy carried out a feasibility study into the extension of the Trust’s combined heat and power (CHP) district heating system.
“This project was completed in a professional manner and in a very short timescale due to the Trust’s requirements; the report received was of high quality.”

David Sanderson, Head of Estates

Voltage Management for University of Portsmouth

“The Green Consultancy’s solution is elegant and maximises energy efficiency at the lowest cost. Salesmen were queuing up to sell us secondary transformers when we already had too many transformers and the result would have been less savings at greater expense.
I have always been impressed with The Green Consultancy’s sound scientific approach to identifying energy reduction opportunities.  I thoroughly recommend them and look forward to the project implementation and further studies by them.”

Ian McCormack, Energy and Environment Manager
