Nigel has also provided an answer in relation tot he CHP query raised on the evening, as follows: -

The calculation is based on the CHP engine being heat led, burning natural gas with a consistent carbon factor for gas going forward (with 50% thermal efficiency) and generating electricity (with 30% electrical efficiency) which is supplied to the development offsetting the need for imported electricity:

  • 2012: Emission for heat generated from CHP engine 0.436kgCO2/kWh, electricity offset from CHP engine -0.311 kgCO2/kWh = net position 0.125kgCO2/kWh heat generated
  • 2016: Emission for heat generated from CHP engine 0.436kgCO2/kWh, electricity offset from CHP engine -0.173 kgCO2/kWh = net position 0.263kgCO2/kWh heat generated
  • 2025: Emission for heat generated from CHP engine 0.436kgCO2/kWh, electricity offset from CHP engine -0.099 kgCO2/kWh = net position 0.344kgCO2/kWh heat generated

The amount of gas burnt remains the same but as the grid decarbonises, the carbon intensity of the electricity which is offset from the CHP engine reduces from current levels, resulting in higher emissions over time.
