Centrica Business Solutions, WSP Developing Integrated Energy Solutions Under U.K. Program
In the U.K., Centrica Business Solutions and WSP have been appointed to develop a future energy systems design for HMS Collingwood in Hampshire as part of a ground-breaking pilot that aims to cut energy costs and carbon emissions across the public sector estate, as part of the Modern Energy Partners project, Centrica said
Modern Energy Partners (MEP) is a collaborative project between Energy Systems Catapult, Cabinet Office and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), working with private sector specialists and Crown Commercial Service. It aims to grow private sector expertise in cutting-edge smart, integrated and optimised energy efficiency solutions that combine low carbon generation, storage and energy demand management.
HMS Collingwood is responsible for the delivery of training and education for all Warfare and Weapon Engineering personnel of the Naval Service and is the Royal Navy’s largest training establishment.
In addition to the three month-project, the companies will be working with MEP to develop a generic methodology that supports the roll-out of integrated energy efficiency solutions across both the public and private sectors, including the development of public sector design requirements for an integrated energy solution across individual sites that can be efficiently procured, financed, installed and operated.
Centrica Business Solutions and WSP are working together to deliver smart energy management and optimisation to businesses spanning the water, commercial buildings, industrial, power and transport sectors. The companies are also co-developing large distributed energy projects for customers looking for a complete end-to-end solution from design and financing through to construction and operation.
