Combined Heat and Power (CHP) specialist ENER-G has been shortlisted for three awards for excellence in low carbon and renewable energy generation by the Association for Decentralised Energy (ADE). The company's anaerobic digestion development for malt producer Muntons Plc is shortlisted for the Industrial Project of the Year, while the company's 23-year cogeneration partnership with Places for People Leisure is in the running for the Commercial / Public Sector Project of the Year. ENER-G's 'ultra-low' NOx CHP range has also won selection for the Innovation Award. Alan Barlow, Managing Director of ENER-G said: "We're delighted to gain industry recognition for these projects, which demonstrate the breadth and depth of ENER-G's CHP capabilities within renewable and low carbon generation. As the sole remaining UK CHP manufacturer, we are proud of our design, development, engineering and manufacturing capabilities for our CHP systems. It also enables us to continuously innovate and speedily develop ever cleaner and greener products to meet the needs of organisations both at home and abroad." ENER-G biogas CHP technology is powering malt producer Muntons' anaerobic digestion facility, supplying organic fertilizer from digestate to local farms to grow the barley used for malting in a sustainable circular process. The high efficiency 499kW system is supplying 11% of the site's electrical baseload and heat for use in the AD process, achieving significant cost and carbon savings. During the past 12 months, Places for People Leisure reduced its carbon footprint by 2643 tonnes by using 13 ENER-G CHP units totalling 8.7MW. The partnership with ENER-G started 23 years ago and most units are supplied under a Discount Energy Purchase agreement, enabling the social enterprise to gain a low cost green energy supply paid for via the cost savings achieved. ENER-G's 'ultra-low' NOx CHP range, which is shortlisted for the ADE innovation award, achieves emissions levels five times lower than the most widely accepted limit and half of the most stringent limit set by BREEAM and the Greater London Authority (GLA). This exceptionally low level is sustained throughout the lifetime of the catalyst and without the extra cost and bulk of using external NOx abatement equipment. The award winners will be announced at The Heat Conference on 23 November 2016 Further information: www.energ.co.uk/chp
