The Rt. Honourable Tim Yeo MP, chairman of the House of Commons Environmental Committee, became the first parliamentarian to check out the raw power behind Disenco Energy's new home energy producing appliance at Prodrive Automotive Technology's Warwick location. The expertise of the motor sport and automotive technology specialists has been leveraged by Disenco to produce an engine capable of producing all the hot water and heating needs of a family as well as up to 70% of their electricity requirements at peak times from a dishwasher-sized appliance installed in the home.
Mr. Yeo states: "I was delighted to have the chance of seeing the HomePowerPlant. This has tremendous potential to help cut the carbon footprint of homes, of small businesses and of buildings of all kinds. It could also speed up the introduction of decentralised micro-generation of electricity."
Production of the appliance has begun with full roll-out beginning in 2008. Sustained tests over the past twelve months show the appliance cutting the carbon footprint of an average home by up to 4 tonnes per annum, and cutting the energy bills of a household by several hundreds of pounds each year. Excess electricity produced by the appliance can be exported and sold to the national grid. Homes fitted with HomePowerPlant will be able to beat the government's 2050 carbon targets by around four decades.
About Disenco Energy
Disenco Energy plc (http://www.disenco.com) is based in Sheffield, England, and has developed a revolutionary, carbon-footprint-reducing HomePowerPlant system as a direct replacement for a domestic boiler and converts waste heat into electricity for use in the home. Disenco's HomePowerPlant is a micro Combined Heat and Power unit ("m-CHP") and generates heat and electricity at efficiency levels in excess of 90 per cent, reduces consumer costs and could create independence from the National Grid. The system generates 15 to 18 kW heat and 3kW electrical power and is expected to reduce the average home's annual carbon emissions by between three to five tonnes. The Company is listed on the TSX Venture Exchange in Canada (EPIC:DIS) and plans to list on London's AIM market in Q2, 2008.
