250kW Biogas CHP System in Herefordshire

On the 1st August 2011 a new CHP system will use biogas for renewable electricity and heat generation in Herefordshire, England.

Some of the electricity will be used to power the poultry houses and anaerobic digester on the farm site, with the remaining 90% will be sold to the national grid. The heat generated from the CHP will warm the chicken houses, reducing the consumption of expensive fuel oil and propane gas.

The CHP plant will generate 250kW of electricity – enough to power 450 houses – and 200kW of heat. The AD plant has been designed to handle 700 tonnes of chicken waste a year, in addition to 1,000 tonnes of cattle slurry and 3,000 tonnes of maize silage.

The UK CHP Development Tool is the latest version of the map, originally developed as a tool aimed at assisting power station developers consider the opportunities for supplying heat and development of combined heat and power (CHP) as required under planning policy. However, it can also be used by both small and large organisations to help identify the locations where the supply of CHP heat would have the greatest potential, and therefore the largest positive environmental impact.
