Bosch ran an educational workshop about CHP.

Bosch leads CHP workshop for young engineers

Published:  17 June, 2014

Young members of the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) have attended a guest lecture from a Bosch Commercial & Industrial Heating representative, gaining an insight into how to reap the benefits of combined heat and power (CHP).

Alex Parkinson, UK CHP sales manager at Bosch Commercial & Industrial Heating, ran the educational workshop. It was attended by 25 members of the CIBSE Young Engineers Network’s northwest region.

Primarily focusing on the fundamental design principles for successful CHP, the session was written by Mr Parkinson for those engineers either new to CHP or wishing to refresh their knowledge on the technology. The presentation detailed examples of the best and worst hydraulic arrangements, electrical connections, competing and complementary technologies, and the importance of service and remote monitoring.

Mr Parkinson said: “It was very flattering to be given the chance to offer an insight into the benefits of CHP to such an esteemed group of engineers. There is no question that the incentives related to CHP technology are stronger than they’ve ever been in the UK, which is why it is important that our industry’s decision-makers of the future feel confident enough to design successful systems which reduce both utility costs and CO2 emissions.”
