A CHP plant (Combined Heat and Power) can have the single largest impact on a food factory’s energy costs over any other energy saving measure. A recent CHP plant developed and delivered by Smeaton Wood Energy for a dairy factory is delivering 75% of the sites electricity demand (total demand 10.5GWh or £1m spend). In addition the CHP plant is generating 40% of the sites heat load. On a project costing £1m it is bringing net savings of £360k per annum and will operate for 10-15 years.
