SHEFFIELD, England, January 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Local energy enabler Disenco Energy plc (TSX:DIS) today announces the appointment of Britain's Malvern Boilers Limited as sub-contractor to produce initial volumes of the condensing boiler element and final assembly of its unique home energy producing appliance, HomePowerPlant.

The appointment follows that of Autocraft Industries UK last week as engine manufacturer for the appliance. Engines from Autocraft will be incorporated into the appliance at Malvern Boilers facilities utilising the latest lean manufacturing techniques, enabling Disenco to meet initial demand for its disruptive product.

Based in Malvern, Worcestershire, Malvern Boilers is an established international sub-contractor, with existing m-CHP experience, working for companies operating in the oil and gas, air conditioning and ventilation sectors. They traditionally provide initial and lower volume state-of-the-art production, assembly and testing resources. Malvern has working relationships with both Advantica and Gastec, and has successfully completed several projects with design consultants Enertek International.

HomePowerPlant is a dishwasher-sized appliance comprising three elements ... a condensing boiler system, an external combustion Sterling engine, and an electrical generator. Combined into a home energy producing system, a family can produce all their hot water and heating needs in the home, as well as up to 70% of their electricity requirements at peak times. Power generation and transition losses from the national grid to the home are eliminated, and the carbon footprint of an average UK home is reduced by up to 4 tonnes per annum.

Homes fitted with HomePowerPlant will be ahead of the UK government's 2050 carbon targets by around four decades and with the appliance generating electricity from low cost natural gas, users will also be able to cut their energy bills by several hundreds of pounds each year. Excess electricity produced can be exported and sold to the national grid.
