University of Northampton to generate heat and hot water with woodchip biomass boilers

Students at the University of Northampton will soon have their heating and hot water generated by a CO2-saving on-site energy centre, incorporating woodchip biomass boilers and a combined heat and power (CHP) system.

The University’s new Waterside campus, which opens in 2018, will have 100% of its heating and hot water needs served by the new energy centre, which is expected save more than 2,200tCO2e a year compared with conventional heating systems when fully operational.

And the 58-acre campus will incorporate a plethora of other energy-saving measures, including LED lights, energy-efficient building design features and an advanced energy monitoring and control system.
