Ener-G Supplies Tri-Generation System to Stratford Eye Development

Renewable power developer Ener-G is supplying tri-generation technology to the Stratford Eye, a mixed-tenure development of offices and apartments, to help it create its own cooling, heating and electricity. The Stratford Eye development overlooks the Olympics site in East London, and as a high-visibility structure seeks to establish London's green credentials for the 2012 Olympic Games.

As part of the same end-to-end solution supplied by Ener-G, competitive procurement and advanced metering systems from Ener-G sister companies including CMR and Switch2 will reportedly cut residents' utility bills by one-third.

An all-inclusive 15-year contract covers every aspect of energy management from utilities procurement through to customer care, billing and maintenance. Tackling fuel poverty is critically important to Stratford Eye's developers London & Quadrant, and Ener-G has worked closely with the client to optimize fuel use.

The combined cooling, heating and power (CCHP) equipment will reduce the 19-storey building's C02 emissions by approximately 93 tonnes per annum, equivalent to the environmental benefits of a 36-hectare forest containing 14,000 trees. The CCHP system recovers heat created in the electricity generation process.

Derek Duffill, group managing director of Ener-G, said: "It is vital that the regeneration program in East London creates a balanced and sustainable community with better quality of life for everyone."
