Our new development Graylingwell Park is the largest net zero carbon development in the UK. As part of the carbon neutral solution, a district heating system has been developed, which provides 37 per cent of the total carbon offset.
This is achieved by incorporating two CHP engines within the Energy Centre – in essence, large boilers that contain generators which produce not only heat but also green electricity.
Hyde Housing approached us in a bid to share information on sustainable energy generation. To assist both parties to learn from each other’s approach to sustainability, we offered Hyde Housing a tour of the Energy Centre and discussions on how the distribution network had been specified.
