Employees of APM Corporate Members:
E.ON are a recognised leader in the development of decentralised (community) energy, creating low carbon district heating solutions for the residential developer market bringing low carbon heat, hot water and electricity directly to local communities. And, because it's produced close to where it's needed, community energy reduces transmission losses and, over the longer term, the cost of heating.
As the name suggests, community energy is produced locally rather than at a large plant elsewhere and sent through the National Grid. This local generation lowers carbon emissions. Security of supply is also increased nationally as customers no longer have to share a supply or rely on relatively few, large and remote traditional power stations. For housebuilders, social landlords, developers and building consortia, community energy is a cost-effective route to achieving carbon targets.
This presentation will give an overview of District Heating Schemes in general, and then focus on a specific live development. The presentation will cover the life cycle of the schemes with a focus on delivery and the challenges that have to be overcome. This presentation will suit project professionals with any level of experience and with all aspects of involvement in projects.
After leaving the Army in 2006 Sean ran his own training consultancy before deciding to return to project management, joining Buro Happold, an engineering consultancy, to manage complex multidisciplinary projects up to the value of £600M all over the world, latterly being based in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. On return to the UK in 2010, Sean worked as the Environment Agency project manager to progress the installation of the world's largest Archimedes screws on Romney Weir in order to power Windsor Castle. Subsequently, he was recruited by E.ON to oversee their community energy projects in London, using combined heat and power plants and biomass boilers to assist developers in reducing CO2 footprint, working towards achieving level 4 in the code for sustainable homes and striving towards zero carbon developments.
This presentation is suitable for all levels of project management.
