The 19-storey Stratford Eye building in the east end of London is to use an Ener-g CHP system as part of the redevelopment of the area.

The Ener-g 110 natural gas-fired reciprocating engine with a synchronous generator has an output of 110 kWe and 181 kWth. The system additionally provides some 130 kW of chilled water through an absorption chiller.

Stratford Eye, a mixed tenure development of offices and apartments, overlooks the Olympic site.

As part of the same development, competitive procurement and advanced measurement and metering systems will cut residents’ utility bills by as much as a third, Ener-g says.

An all-inclusive 15-year contract covers every aspect of energy management from utilities procurement through to customer care, billing and maintenance.

Ener-g sister company Switch2 will deliver a comprehensive utilities management programme that includes metering controls, cash collection and financial administration. Procurement of gas, water and electricity is being provided by fellow Ener-g company CMR.

Derek Duffill, CEO of Ener-g plc, commented: ‘It is vital that the regeneration programme in east London creates a balanced and sustainable community with better quality of life for everyone.’
