Combined Heat and Power (CHP) District Energy Scheme
This exciting campus development was completed at the end of 2018.
What is CHP?
With support from Scottish Government funding, in 2018 we completed the installation of a state-of-the-art combined heating and power system. CHP allows Strathclyde to generate up to 50% of its electricity on campus and use the resultant heat produced to heat campus buildings.
The project involved the installation of several kilometres of large-scale pipework and cabling, as well as the refurbishment of the John Street Energy Centre where heat and power are generated. As of December 2019, 18 buildings on our campus are connected to the scheme.
CHP will help the University create significant financial savings and reduce its carbon footprint. CHP also acts as a catalyst for a wider district energy scheme in Glasgow and is a vital part of the University’s ongoing £1billion campus investment.
Staff and students are welcome to visit the Energy Centre to learn more about CHP. Book your place or contact us for more information.
