CHP for Education

Schools and universities face a big challenge in balancing the books with resources stretched to meet the needs of pupils. At the same time, the reliance on technology is increasing with more institutions offering large numbers of computers and electronic equipment, pushing up the consumption of energy further.

This may seem like a real dilemma but CHP can provide a reliable and cost-effective solution. Harnessing excess power and diverting it to other areas, there’s the potential to save as much as a fifth on energy bills while also slashing carbon emissions too.

A Greener Future

While cost is a major consideration for any educational facility, the impact on the environment must be factored in too. Schools, colleges and universities are usually keen to lead the way to adopt a greener lifestyle by making eco-friendly choices: this is where CHP can be an asset.

Helec can help educational institutions to meet BREEAM targets by installing CHP instead of schools relying conventional energy sources. This can be very effective in demonstrating a commitment to eco-friendly solutions and greener living.

The need to reduce the effect on the planet has to be balanced with the essential everyday functions, but CHP can offer both. By switching to a combined source for energy and power, it’s possible to save more than 20% on carbon emissions – a great example to set students.

The savings could be even higher for sites where the consumption of energy is greater, such as those with extensive leisure facilities. In these cases, the financial and environmental savings will rise further, while still offering the reliability which is vital.
