E.ON’s UK housing project uses CHP and biomass boilers

Utility giant E.ON and house builder Barratt Homes are working in partnership to develop two major housing schemes with community energy in the UK’s capital city of London.

The developments, the former St. Andrews Hospital in east London and New South Quarter in Croydon, will have heat and hot water provided by centralized CHP units and biomass boilers.

E.ON and Barratt Homes are already working on two schemes with decentralized energy: the 550-home Dalston Square and the 950 home Maple Quay, both in east London.

New South Quarter is a 980 home scheme while St Andrews Hospital totals 950 apartments and business units. This will bring the total number of eco-homes developed by E.ON and Barratt in London to 3400.

Between them the four developments are expected to provide carbon savings of almost 18,500 tonnes over the next decade.

Under an energy services company (ESCo) agreement E.ON will manage and maintain the energy supply for each development.
