BasePower's new CHP project at The Caledonian Cheese Company in Stranrarer, is featured in the latest edition of Energy World magazine, in a feature on the development of commercial energy management (CEM).
In an article written by John Piggott, Director of JPEC Ltd, he considers the growth of CEM as a commercial business model. Whilst Power Purchase Agreements for electricity are now as commonplace as heat meters, the commercial supply of heat to industrial users is now more likely to be part of a combined energy service, with models including Combined Heat and Power (CHP), cooling and waste disposal.
BasePower's 2MW CHP installation at The Caledonian Cheese Company (part of Groupe Lactalis) is cited, where process steam, heat and power is provided at the point of use. BasePower worked with JPEC and other supply chain partners to modularise the distributed energy equipment that was installed and ensure that it is deployed efficiently in changing markets.
JPEC Ltd is an independent energy systems consultancy and BasePower partner. The article is published in Energy World, January 2017 and is available to members of the Energy Institute or registered users.
