CHP Optimisation Advice

Having invested in Combined Heat and Power (CHP) technology, many sites are well placed to secure their energy supply efficiently and with a reduced impact on the environment.

Most UK plants, however, do not operate to their maximum capability, and are not, therefore, generating the full return on the investment that is available.

A very small increase in CHP and boilerhouse performance can significantly affect the overall site running costs. With this in mind, NIFES offer a unique independent and comprehensive service to maximise the efficiency of the plant.

NIFES can visit site and survey the CHP and boilerhouse installation, looking at the potential for energy conservation techniques and general safety issues.
The studies investigate and comment on the following:

  • CHP and Boiler controls
  • CHP Pipework Connections and optimisation
  • CHP Electrical Connections and optimisation
  • Review of CHP Maintenance Procedures
  • Potential to increase thermal utilisation
  • Potential to increase electrical utilisation
  • Potential to optimise run hours
  • Optimisation of legislative opportunities
  • Comparison of performance against contracted obligations
  • CHPQA Optimisation benefits
