DECC Leading Trade Bodies Visit Vital Energi Installation

Vital Energi continue to cement their reputation as an industry leader when it comes to Combined Heat and Power (CHP) installation and design and another of their high-profile projects has been acknowledged as an example of what can be achieved in the CHP energy sector.

The Government and key industry associations toured the facility as part of the CHP Quality Assurance (CHPQA) workshop held at the University of Liverpool and got the opportunity to see the installation in progress.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) CHPQA workshop was held on Tuesday 28th January 2014 and included presentations from Peter Birch of The University of Liverpool, Dave Wilkinson, Associate Design Director of Vital Energi, representatives from DECC and included a tour of the university's energy centres.

The purpose of the workshop was to improve knowledge of the benefits of gas CHP among key stakeholders and promote DECC's CHPQA programme which defines, assesses and monitors CHP schemes on the basis of energy efficiency and environmental performance. As industry leaders, Vital Energi takes every opportunity to promote the benefits of sustainable technologies and consult with government to help shape their policies.

Vital Energi is due to complete installation of the two new CHP gas engines into the boiler house by June 2014. The project is a key element in The University of Liverpool's strategy to improve its energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions.

Ian Whitelock, Joint Managing Director of Vital Energi, commented: "We are proud of our work at The University of Liverpool and pleased that the new energy centre has been chosen as an example of a high quality CHP scheme."
