University chooses biomass CHP for new campus

Vital Energi has won a contract to deliver a combined heat and power (CHP)-based energy centre to a new campus at the University of Northampton in the UK. à‚ 

The centre is planned to feature a 1 MW biomass boiler fuelled by woodchips, four 4 MW gas-fired boilers and 120 cubic metres of thermal storage, providing heating and hot water for buildings and student residences, Vital Energi said. à‚ à‚ 

The site is planned to be operational when the new campus opens in 2018.

Mike Cooke, Vital Energi’s Regional Director, said the university was ‘setting a great example for the higher education sector by demonstrating how renewable energy solutions can be implemented, reducing carbon emissions and integrating thermal storage to maximize the renewable heat incentive.’à‚
