UK field tests for micro-CHP device

UK energy brokerage and consultancy Utilitywise is to field test a micro-combined heat and power (CHP) solution from Inspirit Energy, the companies have announced.

The two firms have signed an agreement for testing and field trials of Inspirit Energy’s Stirling engine-based micro-CHP product in Utilitywise’s market segment, which focuses on small and medium-sized businesses.

The agreement covers testing at several sites in the UK, and the companies plan to test the technology in a range of demand cycles including full and partial utilisation.

John Gunn, CEO at Inspirit Energy, said: ‘This is a very significant agreement with a major European utility brokerage and energy consultancy company.  Partnering with Utilitywise will allow Inspirit Energy to trial its technology in a range of SME and other installations, validate the mCHP product, and demonstrate its cost saving capabilities. This will help accelerate the move to volume manufacturing over the next 12 months.’

The 3 kWe/15 kWth mCHP appliance (pictured) can operate as a stand-alone device or, in larger facilities, can run in conjunction with a conventional boiler system, Inspirit said.
