CHPA Awards 2011: Winners announced

The CHPA Awards, showcasing achievement, innovation and best practice from across the combined heat and power and district heating sector, were presented by Alan Whitehead MP on 22 November. The Awards, now in their fourth year, were presented in five categories.

The Innovation Award - was presented to the scheme at The National Sports Centre. A record-breaking low carbon CHP solution at the iconic National Sports Centre in Crystal Palace, a listed heritage building which was opened in 1964. The project is particularly innovative for utilising waste heat from the gas engine exhaust to enhance efficiency and performance.

The Community and Residential Award was presented the scheme at Graylingwell Park. Graylingwell Park is set to be the UK’s largest net zero carbon new development built to date. It boasts an integrated district heating scheme that is introducing the benefits of distributed energy to a new sustainable community on this former hospital site.

The Industrial and Commercial Award was presented to the sceheme at UPM Caledonian paper mill. With huge amounts of electricity and heat required to drive processes in the pulp and paper industry, UPM Caledonian has explored ways of reducing its energy costs while improving competitiveness at its Irvine site. The CHP plant has been instrumental in helping UPM to reduce its CO2 emissions by around 75,000 tonnes annually.

The Public Sector Award was presented to the Olympic Delivery Authority for the Olympic Park and Stratford City. The scheme comprises two inter-linked energy centres serving the Olympic Park’s temporary and permanent venues, the Olympic Village, Westfield Stratford Shopping Centre and businesses and homes in Stratford area. The energy centres will also deliver low carbon energy to the Olympic Park’s legacy buildings and surrounding developments, including the regeneration of Stratford City.

The Champion Award, recognising an outstanding contribution to the advancement of CHP or district energy in the UK, was presented to Bill Clark, Sustainability Policy Manager at Southampton City Council.

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.
