CHP expected to save UK leisure centre $64,000 per year

A leisure centre in the UK has commissioned a new combined heat and power (CHP) system, which is expected to save £40,000 ($64,000) in energy costs per year.

The 200 kW system was installed by on-site power firm EuroSite Power, which will own and operate the facility for 15 years under its agreement with the facility’s owner, BH Live.

The system is expected to produce up to 1209 MWe and 1434 MWth for the Littledown Centre (pictured) in Bournemouth, which features leisure, swimming, football and gym facilities.

In addition, EuroSite Power said the system is expected to save up to 375 metric tonnes of CO2.

Mike Lyons, BH Live's Director of Leisure Facilities, said: ‘Maintaining control of energy consumption and managing cost is very important for the efficient running of Littledown Centre which has more than 1.5 million visits a year.

‘As a social enterprise, surplus revenues are reinvested into improving and increasing our services, so we were looking to reduce our utility expenditure to protect our revenues and improve our green credentials.

‘With zero up-front costs, the EuroSite Power solution provides immediate, guaranteed, risk-free savings, with costs guaranteed to be lower than if we were to buy our electricity directly from the national grid.’
