Anaerobic Digestion is the production of methane gas which can then be used in various ways.
The need to store electricity is increasing and the ability to use batteries to do this is developing rapidly.
Biomass Combined Heat and Power (CHP)
Biomass combined heat and power (CHP) is a process where a biomass fuel is gasified and then the gas is burnt in a CHP engine to produce electricity and heat.
Biomass heating is the use of a fuel that is derived typically from wood although other materials such as straw can be used.
CDM Principal Designer Service
Our Energy Team regularly project manages the installation of energy projects for Clients. We therefore have the expertise and skills to provide a CDM Principle Designer service for Clients undertaking an energy project.
Combined Heat and Power (CHP)
Combined heat and power is the burning of a fuel in an engine. The engine is used to drive a generator to produce electricity and the by-product of heat from operating the engine is captured and used as well.
District Heat Networks
District heat networks supply heat to a number of buildings or units within a building.
