Two combined heat and power (CHP) engines are to be installed at Imperial College London.
The 4.5MW engines will be set up in the university’s new energy centre and are expected to cut energy costs by millions of pounds.
Mike Cooke, Regional Director for Vital Energi said: “Imperial College London had a clear vision that they wanted to reduce their carbon emissions and save energy costs and we are delighted to have worked in partnership with them to realise these ambitions.
“The College has made a significant investment in this project but they will now receive guaranteed savings of £32 million and carbon reductions of 100,000 tonnes over the next 10 years.”
Vital Energi has guaranteed all savings under an energy performance contract.
