Visit to Old Oak Common
GI Energy invited the Heat and Business Energy team from the Government's Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, earlier this month to the Old Oak Common Crossrail Depot, to showcase how a 1MW GSHP solution, utilising energy piles and boreholes can be integrated with Combined Heat and Power, Solar Thermal and Photo Voltaic solutions, enhancing the overall energy savings and CO2 benefits than standalone renewable solutions.
Approximately 54% of the new railway depot’s heating and cooling will be provided from renewable technologies and 20% of electrical load will be generated on site from a combination of CHP and Solar PV technology, providing the rail depot with an overall 33% renewable energy solution. It is assessed that once operational, run cost savings will be circa £100,000 per annum when compared against conventional equipment, and will save some 530Tonnes of CO2 per annum. The entire system is calculated to provide payback on the initial investment in less than 10 Years.
