The Combined Heat and Power Plant (CHP)
As part of the national Heritage Open Days scheme, the University is inviting members of the public to visit its Combined Heat and Power Plant (CHP) and Energy Centre.
Members of the public, as well as University staff and students, can discover how a Grade II listed former Victorian coal-fired boiler house and mortuary has been transformed into a state of the art 21st Century energy centre and workshops. Visitors will also explore the University’s award-winning CHP.
These buildings represent an investment of £19million and a key element in the Universities’ sustainability agenda. The CHP uses gas to generate electricity for the University campus and the waste heat from the electrical generation to provide hot water services and heating for University buildings.
