Vital Energi Spreads the CHP Word in Hampshire

Sustainable energy specialists from Vital Energi provided industry insight into the issues currently affecting the development of Combined Heat and Power (CHP) in the UK during a presentation at an event organised by Hampshire County Council in April.

The event, which took place on Monday 15th April 2013 at Ashburton Hall, Hampshire County Council, QEII Building, Southampton SO23 8UJ, is part of the Ecotec21 project which seeks to improve energy efficiency by promoting Combined Heat and Power (CHP) from many fuels including biomass.

Vital Energi's Mark Howell and Howard Roche gave a presentation at the event on the 'Use of Biomass in Combined Heat and Power District Energy Schemes'. They demonstrated the cost, technology and legislative barriers for biomass CHP, in the UK, and covered the challenges and opportunities presented by government incentives.

The aim of the Hampshire County Council's event was to bring together local authorities, universities, research institutions, government funded organisations, energy and facility managers, architects and elected members to explore how delegates from the UK and France can collaborate and compare the methods and practicalities of establishing CHP district energy schemes in their respective regions. 

Ian Whitelock, joint managing director of Vital Energi, commented: "Vital Energi is always happy to give our time and expertise to educational events, like this conference, that demonstrate the benefits of using renewable CHP as a technology in district heating schemes.

"As a market leader in sustainable energy we understand the importance of sharing our expertise with public and private sector organisations and providing the guidance that is fundamental to the successful delivery of their community energy schemes."
