SHEFFIELD, England, March 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Disenco Energy plc today announces that it is in detailed discussions with major utilities in the UK, mainland Europe and North America and expects to shortly complete commercial relationships with them for the distribution of its home energy producing and micro-combined heat and power technology appliance HomePowerPlant (HPP).
Disenco believes utilities are a key route to market for its appliance due to the combination of radical change to distributed energy and the savings represented by this m-CHP technology from both an ecological as well financial aspect.
Disenco yesterday confirmed commercial availability of its HPP appliance from Q3, 2008. A better and greener solution to powering a house or office than conventional boilers or furnaces, HPP produces all of the heat, hot water and on average 50% of the electrical demand of a modern house and can satisfy up to 70% of peak load electrical demand.
Energy costs in a typical UK residential property are calculated to be reduced by between 25% to 35% using HPP with a simultaneous 2 to 4 tonnes reduction in carbon emissions representing nearly 70% of the emissions of the typical UK home. Excess electricity generated in this green manner, from what would otherwise be waste heat, can be exported and sold to the national grid or utility for use by other consumers who can then benefit from this green energy.
Small medium enterprises (SMEs) will also benefit significantly from the use of the appliance, with their heat loads and run times being longer and therefore generating larger energy savings and carbon reductions of up to 20 tonnes per year.
The HPP will significantly reduce the peak demand for grid supplied electricity and will assist governments in their decision making processes surrounding future grid infrastructure and centralized power generation strategies.
More information on the HPP appliance and the calculation of its energy and carbon saving credentials can be found on the company's website at http://www.disenco.com. Disenco is listed on the Toronto TSX Venture Exchange (DIS.V) and plans to list on London's AIM market this year.
