Combining Heat and Power for Better Business Success

Invest Northern Ireland will be hosting the Combined Heat & Power (CHP) show at the Lagan Valley LeisurePlex in Lisburn on the 20th January. Open to all with free admission the event will focus on combined heat and power - a highly efficient method of generating electricity and heat that has the potential to provide significant savings to local businesses.

Alan Neville, Director of Knowledge Management with Invest Northern Ireland commented: “In a global market place,industry must continuously look to more innovative ways of reducing costs in order to remain competitive. With the cost of energy rising and the imposition of Climate Change Levy, many organisations have been forced to reconsider the ways in which they obtain and use energy.”

“By educating local firms about the real business benefits of CHP we are helping them to make real cost savings which will increase their overall competitiveness and help to reduce their impact on the environment in the long-term,” he continued.

Doors open from 8am to 6pm and over 30 different suppliers and installers of CHP equipment will be exhibiting the latest technologies currently on offer. Delegates will also have the opportunity to observe the LeisurePlex’s own on-site CHP facility and discuss their unique energy needs with expert advisors to find out what methods they can employ to make real cost savings.

A conference will also run alongside the exhibition with the morning session dedicated to ‘New Opportunities for Combined Heat and Power’ and the afternoon focussed on ‘CHP in practice’.  Further information on the show can be found at
