Cogenco’s CHP unit to help university cut carbon emissions

Cogenco, a subsidiary of Dalkia, has designed and installed a 1.4 MWe CHP unit for the University of Bradford, located in the north of England.

The unit will ensure the university campus can save more that GBP8 million (US$12.8 million) over a 20-year period, while helping it meet its carbon reduction targets, says Cogenco.

The company claims its CHP technology is more efficient and sustainable than conventional boilers, which ties in with the university’s ‘Ecoversity plan’ to boost sustainable development across the campus in order to half its carbon emissions by 2020.

Russell Smith, University of Bradford’s estates manager – Engineering and Building, commented, “Early indications are positive. The installation of the CHP is a step closer to achieving the university’s ambitious carbon reduction target.

Since the [CHP plant] has been operational there has already been periods when it has supplied all of the university’s electricity and therefore reduced the dependency on the grid.”
