Cogeneration units helps UK supermarket save £1.28m pa
Cogeneration units at 59 stores help a UK supermarket save £1.28M annually.
We’re helping one of Britain’s leading retailers achieve its energy and cost-saving goals, with ENER-G Combined Heat and Power (CHP) systems tailored to its stores. Rolled out at 59 sites, the systems have already saved the company approximately £1.28M a year on energy costs and cut CO2 emissions by 8,100 tonnes a year.
The switch to ENER-G CHP has not only saved costs, it’s also given the retailer greater control over its power and more resilience in its energy supply. After the systems were installed, many stores started to see a return on investment within three years, with average savings of £24,000 a year, after maintenance costs.
The ENER-G CHP systems are up to twice as efficient as traditional generation and capture the heat created in the generation process to provide low-cost heating and hot water. It’s a win-win. They can run on any fuel, including renewable biogas and propane.
Because no two stores are the same, we started with a feasibility study at each site, taking account of local needs and restrictions, such as space and layout. We designed bespoke CHP solutions to fit, ranging from large 230kWe units located outdoors, to micro-generators built into a small internal room. We also developed bespoke maintenance contracts with constant monitoring to ensure that targets are met.
