EuroSite Power to offer Clean Energy from combined heat and power system

By Greentech Lead Team: EuroSite Power, an on-site
utility, offering clean electricity, heat, hot water and cooling solutions to
hospitality, healthcare, housing and leisure centers in the U.K. and Europe,
has signed an agreement to supply clean energy to Haverhill Leisure Centre in

The fifteen-year agreement enables the company to install
an InVerde 100 combined heat and power system at the center managed by
Abbeycroft Leisure, a Charitable Leisure Trust which operates St Edmundsbury
Borough Council’s other leisure centre in Bury St Edmunds plus another fitness
centre in Ipswich.

The CHP system, providing 100 kW, will be owned and
operated by EuroSite Power. The Leisure Trust will receive a discount on the
energy produced by the CHP systems and reduce its carbon emissions from the
property. The value of the agreement to the company is 1.5 million pounds

“This is a very significant order for EuroSite Power
and it prepares us for a very exciting 2012. Public leisure centers are an
important part of our growth strategy, the Company continues to pursue these
and other large property holders to accelerate our growth within the UK
market,” said Paul Hamblyn, managing director of EuroSite Power.

A press release said EuroSite Power will produce clean
energy in the form of electricity, heating and domestic hot water for the
center at a price lower than Abbeycroft Leisure’s current and future energy

The center will pay only for the energy used and will
avoid all capital, installation and operating costs. The company will handle
all service, maintenance and repair. The specific CHP system planned for the
property is expected to reduce the emissions of the leisure centre by 224 tons
of carbon dioxide each year and because good quality CHP is supported by
government, the impact of the Climate Change Levy will be greatly reduced.
