B&ES Publications has launched the newly revised TR37 – Guide to Good Practice – Installation of Combined Heat and Power (CHP), which offers a practical overview of CHP for building services engineers.
The guide aims to place the installation requirements in the context of the overall construction process and enable effective delivery of an efficiently functioning system and building.
The revised edition is available as an online publication, enabling quick cross-referencing to other useful guidance. Readers of TR37 should gain a strong understanding of the technology and factors involved in the application of CHP.
Bob Towse, head of B&ES Technical and Safety at B&ES Publications said: “Climate change, energy costs and energy supply security are high on the UK Government’s agenda. CHP can help address these issues by reducing CO2 emissions, alleviating fuel poverty and lowering the cost in delivering public services, therefore making energy go further whether renewable or fossil”.
CHP has already been put to successful and wide scale use in the UK, ranging from small, domestic installations through to large teaching hospitals and vast industrial applications. Primary energy savings of 23-30 per cent are possible from CHP usage rather than conventional ways of providing heat and power.
