Our combined heat and power plant is fully operational and it will generate around 27MW of green electricity. Our plant burns locally sourced wood fuel to generate heat and power for Discovery Park and export electricity to the national grid. We generate enough electricity to supply the equivalent of 50,000 homes and save over 100,000 tons of CO2 every year. It’s difficult to visualise how much that is but would look the same as 165,000 really big hot air balloons and the saving is equal to over 1 million plane flights to Paris. Around 15 – 20% of the clean, green energy we generate is supplied directly to the tenants of Discovery Park, who also benefit from the heat generated by the steam from our plant.
