Project Summary

Discussions with the local education authority led to a working relationship with Meden School in Warsop, Mansfield, a member of the Torch Academy Gateway Trust.

For many years Meden School have used coal boilers to heat the two main school buildings and the nearby sports centre. Operational costs including routine maintenance were high and the carbon emissions of 1,034.2 tonnes per year could have a negative impact on local environment.

With the support of carbon reduction incentive grants from Ofgem, J L Phillips Renewable Energy Ltd have been able to provide the school with a brand new biomass fuelled boiler system as a replacement for their aging coal boilers. The incentives will also cover all servicing and maintenance for a 20-year period. The replacements, two Herz woodchip fuelled biomass boilers have been assembled into purpose built containers and were installed over the 2016 summer holiday period, along with 2 woodchip stores and LPG back up boilers.

While the school will continue to fund the woodchip fuel required to power the biomass boilers, it will be their only outlay. JL Phillips Renewable Energy Ltd will receive the incentive grants as a reimbursement for the installation and ongoing maintenance costs, during the 20-year contractual agreement.

The carbon reduction project has provided Meden School with a modern efficient boiler installation, which will significantly reduce the impact of CO2 emissions on the local environment. The government backed incentives, which have been applied for by J L Phillips Renewable Energy Ltd, will also ensure that the impact of the ongoing boiler maintenance costs will be funded by the incentives over a 20-year period. Leaving the school in a position to invest the significant savings in teaching and teaching equipment
