  • United Kingdom(Great Britain) : ENER-G CHP Reduces Carbon Footprint of Manchester's Historic Town Hall and Library
    July 26, 2015
    Two of Manchester's finest public buildings are generating their own low carbon energy supply via ENER-G combined heat and power (CHP) technology. As part of the multi-million pound refurbishment of the grade two-star listed Manchester Town Hall Extension and Central Library, main contractor Laing O' Rourke worked with local CHP specialist ENER-G, NG Bailey and BDP to design, develop and supply the energy efficient system. Alan Barlow, Managing Director of ENER-G Combined Power Ltd, said: 'As a local business we are pleased to help Manchester City Council deliver on its carbon reduction programme. The units are operating at around 90% efficiency, helping to create cleaner and affordable energy for the city. This project demonstrates the suitability of CHP for retrofit projects'.

  • United Kingdom(Great Britain) : UK Government Removes Heat Metering Tool
    July 21, 2015
    The UK’s department for energy and climate change (DECC) has notified the heat sector of its decision to to suspend the the requirement for cost effectiveness tests for individual metering and removed the Heat Metering Viability Tool.

    The department posted the following notice on the webpage that hosts the district heat networks metering guidance and regulations (Heat Networks Metering and Billing: compliance and guidance - Detailed guidance - GOV.UK), on the back of the latest directive on the tool from the European Commission.

    "The European Commission is developing guidance on the application of cost effectiveness tests for heat metering, under the Energy Efficiency Directive. This means that the earlier DECC cost effectiveness tool will need to be revised. In most properties, the tool had indicated that individual heat meters will not be cost-effective. Therefore, pending the revision of the tool we are advising that no further assessments should be undertaken."
