Project info

Name:
LoadTracker - CHP

Consultant: The Keenan Consultancy

Client: Dunedin Canmore Housing

The Project

A new build project for Dunedin Canmore Housing Association’s consisting of a multi-use property containing 192 affordable homes and 8 business units to regenerate a rundown area of Edinburgh.

The Challenge

To provide a system that would reduce CO emissions by a minimum of 20%. With limited space constraints and high load demands equipment sizing was a major consideration for this project.

Summary of site demand

Annual electricity demand…………………………………………….868,000 kWh

Electricity price……………………………………………………………..11.0 p/kWh

Gas consumption……………………………………………………..1,545,000 kWh

Gas price………………………………………………………………………..4.0 p/kWh

The solution

Supplied and installed four 15kWe/ 30kWth LoadTracker CHP units able to supplying 74% of site heating and hot water demand and 54% of electrical demand.

Features

  • Modular Unit Design for flexibility of install.
  • LoadTracker automatically modulates electrical output, which minimizes unnecessary grid electricity consumption.
  • Noise levels of 49db comparable to low level office noise.
  • Long service intervals (8,000 hours or 2 years).

Benefits

  • Consumption & Production
  • Carbon Footprint Savings
  • Cost Savings

Consumption & Production

Consumption and Production

Carbon Footprint Savings

161 tonnes of CO2 emissions could be reduced by installing a CHP system relative to a conventional mains supply/ gas boiler system.

This is an equivalent 20% reduction of CO2 emissions.

Carbon Footprint Savings

Carbon Savings

Cost Savings

The use of LoadTracker CHP would result in annual savings of £29,965 relative to a conventional mains supply/ boiler system.

This is equivalent to saving 19% on energy bills.
