BasePower’s on-site energy scheme at Plastic Omnium, Measham has been shortlisted for an Association of Decentralised Energy award, the second time that a BasePower project has reached the finals of an industry award in 2018.
The Combined Heat, Power and Cooling project at Plastic Omnium, Measham, is recognised as the first on-site energy scheme in the UK automotive sector to use absorption chiller technology to significantly reduce energy costs and carbon. Since the project was switched on in June 2017 the targeted savings for electricity and heat use have already been exceeded, along with a considerable improvement in the site’s CO2 footprint.
The Association of Decentralised Energy (ADE) awards are designed to recognise and celebrate decentralised energy achievements and the innovations of the future. The awards will take place at a black tie event at London’s Guildhall on 25th October.
BasePower’s project at Plastic Omnium Measham also made the finals of the Business Green Leaders Awards earlier in the year, while its CHP at Groupe Lactalis Caledonian Cheese in Stranraer won a Rushlight Award in 2017.
