Energy from Waste Combined Heat and Power Project has Recieved Planning Permission from Plymouth City Council

An Energy from Waste (EfW) CHP plant will be built at Devonport Docks. The developer company has a long-term waste contract with the South West Devon Waste Partnership (SWDWP). The company will be handling residual waste on behalf of SWDWP members, including Torbay Council and Devon County Council.

Combined Heat and Power plant will have the capacity to handle up to 245,000 tonnes of residual waste a year. It will be situated at the North Yard of the Devonport naval base in Plymouth which will be supplied with steam and electricty under a 25-year energy services agreement with the Ministry of Defence. Construction is due to start on the plant in 2012 and it is expected to be operational by mid-2014.

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.
