4 WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP TO DELIVER SUSTAINABLE ENERGY SOLUTIONS 1. What is CHP and District Heating

5 WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP TO DELIVER SUSTAINABLE ENERGY SOLUTIONS Combined Heat & Power (CHP) - recovery of heat produced when generating electricity (usually wasted) What is CHP?

6 WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP TO DELIVER SUSTAINABLE ENERGY SOLUTIONS CHP - operates at 70-85% efficiency compared to typical power stations 25-35%. CHP - Replacing central power stations with more efficient local generation What is CHP?

7 WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP TO DELIVER SUSTAINABLE ENERGY SOLUTIONS On site heat, chilled water and electricity distribution network Used for distributing energy from boilers & CHP Current heating piping systems - heat losses are 1°C per km Reliability of current piping systems - 100% Large sections could use plastic PE-X Pipes What is District Energy ?

13 WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP TO DELIVER SUSTAINABLE ENERGY SOLUTIONS 3. Why Southampton ?

14 WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP TO DELIVER SUSTAINABLE ENERGY SOLUTIONS The Catalyst - The Geothermal Well and Resource

15 WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP TO DELIVER SUSTAINABLE ENERGY SOLUTIONS The Rock and the Pump

16 WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP TO DELIVER SUSTAINABLE ENERGY SOLUTIONS 4. The First Step - The Partnership with the Council

17 WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP TO DELIVER SUSTAINABLE ENERGY SOLUTIONS The Cornerstone – The Joint Co-operation Agreement The Scheme has always had cross party support - the first step was to sign a Joint Co-Operation agreement first in the UK pre-dating PFI This committed Utilicom to : –Developing a district heating scheme in Southampton initially based around geothermal energy –Sell heat to Council buildings with agreed savings –Provide all necessary funding and technical/management expertise to ensure the scheme developed successfully –Provide open book accounting and a long term profit share to SCC and committed SCC to : –Take heat wherever practical for SCC buildings –Provide land for the Heat Station for a peppercorn –Help Utilicom promote the scheme to other potential users –Provide general support to Utilicom in developing the scheme - planning, highways etc… –Treat Utilicom as a ‘statutory utility’ within the boundaries of the City

18 WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP TO DELIVER SUSTAINABLE ENERGY SOLUTIONS Company Organisation Structure UTILICOM GROUP LIMITED UTILICOM GROUP LIMITED UTILICOM LTD SGHC SOUTHAMPTON CITY COUNCIL UTILICOM LTD SGHC SOUTHAMPTON CITY COUNCIL CO-OPERATION AGREEMENT = Total Risk Transfer to the Private Sector

19 WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP TO DELIVER SUSTAINABLE ENERGY SOLUTIONS The Partnership Utilicom and SCC meet quarterly to plan new developments SCC representatives led by Executive Director (Mike Smith), building design, planning, environment, regeneration, highways etc.. Supplemented by regular, often daily, dialogue to ensure that the scheme develops to deliver the aims of both parties Currently saving organisations within the City over £0.25M per annum in energy costs and delivering 11,000 tons of Carbon Savings LA Councillor and Officer Champion are essential to making the scheme work – this has been one of the keys to the success of the Southampton scheme

20 WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP TO DELIVER SUSTAINABLE ENERGY SOLUTIONS 5. The Energy Generation Plant

21 WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP TO DELIVER SUSTAINABLE ENERGY SOLUTIONS The Plant: 2 MW Geothermal Well 2 small scale CHP - 400kWe each Back up/top boilers around City operated by Utilicom - Civic Centre & Hospital 8 MW of chilled water plant – absorption and vapour compression 5.7 MW dual fuel Wartsila CHP generator All serving over 40 consumers via a network of over 11 km of heating & cooling pipes around the City Centre for a total capital cost of £7M Supplying over 70,000,000 kWh of energy each year with CO2 savings of 11,000 Tonnes p.a.

24 WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP TO DELIVER SUSTAINABLE ENERGY SOLUTIONS Our 5.7 MW CHP being delivered !

25 WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP TO DELIVER SUSTAINABLE ENERGY SOLUTIONS We also have smaller scale CHP and CH schemes !

26 WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP TO DELIVER SUSTAINABLE ENERGY SOLUTIONS HOLYROOD ESTATE City Council owned housing, approx 300 flats in 9 blocks, each with only a single room heater and electric immersion Utilicom designed and project managed installation of district heating and hot water system including CHP to serve entire estate Cost guarantee given by Utilicom to SCC for future energy supplies SCC Housing very satisfied - voids virtually gone and ability to let flats on the estate enormously increased.

27 WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP TO DELIVER SUSTAINABLE ENERGY SOLUTIONS Holyrood Estate – 300 dwellings supplied with heat from local Energy Centre including CHP - guaranteed heat price, with full maintenance of all in dwelling equipment Public Sector Housing

31 WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP TO DELIVER SUSTAINABLE ENERGY SOLUTIONS How are connections funded ? Connection charges from the consumer Long term energy supply revenues – repaying bank or private sector finance Grant funding – Community Energy Fund and others…

32 WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP TO DELIVER SUSTAINABLE ENERGY SOLUTIONS Do Consumers Connect ? Yes – because they understand the benefits, i.e. Barratt Homes a convert to the scheme However, many developers wish to use cheap electric heating – high emissions and operating costs Also building services consultants acting for potential consumers often prefer own plant as this is traditional and returns fees SCC/Utilicom work in partnership to demonstrate benefits and encourage use of Whole Life Cycle costing SCC can also encourage via the planning process, Section 106’s and land sale agreements
