  • United Kingdom(Great Britain) : CHP to Benefit from UK Low Carbon Strategy
    January 29, 2015
    The British government is to increase by £25m the level of funding aimed at less established technologies such as combined heat and power, as part of its overall drive towards decarbonisation.

    The level of funding for such projects has been increased "following high levels of demand for contracts" the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) said in a statement.

    As part of its Contracts for Difference (CfD) support scheme, the government has already awarded early funding to eight projects and is now offering £65m for established technologies, such as onshore wind and solar farms, and £260m for less established technologies, including offshore wind and biomass with combined heat and power (CHP).

  • United Kingdom(Great Britain) : Straw-Fuelled CHP Planned for UK's Norwich
    January 28, 2015
    A £325 million ($494 million) combined heat and power (CHP) project is planned for the UK city of Norwich, including a new district heating scheme.

    E.ON would be responsible for the scheme, to be called Generation Park Norwich (pictured, artist's rendition), which would be fuelled by straw pellets, sourced from UK farms and delivered by rail. The project is predicted to r educe Norwich's carbon footprint by more than 22% and is being developed by NPH (Norwich) LLP - a partnership which includes the University of East Anglia.

  • USA : Capstone to Provide Heat and Power to Syracuse VA Medical Center with Eight C65 Microturbines
    January 27, 2015
    Capstone Turbine Corporation, the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that it recently received an order for eight C65 microturbines to upgrade the Syracuse VA Medical Center (VAMC) in Syracuse, New York. GEM Energy, Capstone's distributor in New York, secured the order.

    The Syracuse VAMC chose clean-and-green Capstone microturbines to improve their energy efficiency and grid reliability, as well as reduce utility energy consumption. The eight natural gas powered microturbines will be used in an integrated combined heat and power (ICHP) application to produce 520kW of electricity and hot water for the medical center. With project constraints around available space for the CHP plant, Capstone's microturbines were a perfect fit with the least amount of noise and vibration.

  • USA : Virginia's Prince William County Approves New Organic Waste Processing Facility
    January 26, 2015
    The Board of County Supervisors in Prince William County, Virginia, have authorized an agreement with Freestate Farms LLC, a Northern Virginia-based agricultural services and production company, to construct and operate a facility to process yard waste, food scraps and wood waste at the county's Balls Ford Road composting facility, and to provide organics waste management services at that site and at the county's landfill.

    Raw biogas produced during the anaerobic digestion process will fuel a combined heat and power generator set to provide heat and power to the Balls Ford Road facility, with surplus renewable energy available for off-site uses, potentially including transportation fuel.

  • United Kingdom(Great Britain) : Rolls-Royce CHP Plant Goes into Operation
    January 22, 2015

    In Czech Republic a combined heat and power (CHP) plant designed to provide grid support has commenced operation.

    Based on four 20-cylinder Rolls-Royce engines, the plant generates a total of 37 MW of heat and power (including district heating) for the town of Tabor/Sezimovo Ústí roughly 100 kilometers southeast of the Prague.

    "This is the first natural gas power plant based on medium-speed gas engines in the region to go into operation supplying heat and power to the local grid. This project is an additional step forward towards a green future for our region and country," said Libor Dolezal, CEO at plant operator C-Energy.
