Centrica Business Solutions and NEC lock in cost reduction with our Energy as a Service (EaaS) solution

Work is underway on a major energy project at the NEC, Birmingham, which will see the UK’s leading events venue generate its power needs onsite.

Centrica Business Solutions will provide heat and power to the NEC site through the design, installation, operation and maintenance of three gas generators, including an 850 kWe Combined Heat and Power unit (CHP).

It’s the first deal of its type for Centrica Business Solutions, which will finance the delivery of the project - repaid from the energy savings made over the asset life. British Gas Business will supply the top up electricity for the site.

The deal will see the NEC reduce its energy costs and improve energy resilience on site, as a result of being less reliant on grid power. It will also future proof the site to take advantage of Demand Side Response activity including operating on the capacity market.

The partnership with Centrica Business Solutions will deliver significant energy savings to the NEC. Sustainability is still a primary business focus for the NEC Group and this project will significantly enhance our sustainable working and environmental impact.
