Environmental guidance for your business in Northern Ireland & Scotland
If your business works with a demand for electricity and a similar demand for heat in the same or in nearby buildings, you should consider using a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system.
Businesses that will benefit the most from using a CHP system are usually those with a constant heat demand, whether the heat is used as steam for industrial processes, hot water and space heating or used to supply cooling through absorption chillers. Examples might include:
Individual businesses that do not have a constant heat demand may find that in periods of low demand they are able to export excess heat through a district heating network. As an added benefit, the business may be able to generate revenue from heat sales.
Who can benefit from Combined Heat and Power?
A day with Hydrology, SEPA's hydrometry unit is responsible for around 400 gauging stations and 350 rainfall monitoring sites. River gauging stations are important as they allow river levels to be monitored so flood events can be predicted and flood warnings sent out.
