The team at Clarke Energy are delighted to have supported the Scottish regional meeting of the Association for University Engineers (AUE).
The event was held at the University of Dundee, Clarke Energy’s first natural gas fuelled combined heat and power (CHP) plant, installed 21 years ago and still contributing to 97% of the campus electrical load.
Delegates included valued customers from across Scotland, including University of Edinburgh, Glasgow Caledonian University, Aberdeen Heat and Power, University of Glasgow, University of Aberdeen and Stirling University.
Clarke Energy’s team which participated included Haydn Rees, Managing Director, Nick Nicoloau, Technical Director, Liam Grainey Engineering Manager and Jamie Wynne Area Service Manager.
Haydn Rees presented, concentrating on CHP topics important to the audience – return temperatures, emissions, importance of correct sizing and aftersales support.
Tours of the university’s energy centre concluded the event.
The Association of University Engineers (known as the AUE) was formed in 1970 by a small group of University Engineers who wanted to create a ‘networked union of like-minded people’. The Association has representation from well over 100 universities throughout the UK and Eire.
Clarke Energy has provided over 40MWe of gas engine-based CHP plants to Universities in the UK alone helping save operational costs and reducing carbon emissions for university estates.
