SHARC Energy Systems to work with Engie Regeneration on heat network portfolio
SHARC Energy Systems, a UK-based green energy firm, is to collaborate with Engie Regeneration teams on integrating SHARC’s technology into the Engie heat network portfolio> The partners will alsow work on creating new standalone low carbon district heating networks.
Engie UK & Ireland put a call for innovative projects and solutions for the recovery of heat from wastewater and sewage earlier this year, with SHARC confirmed as one of two successful bidders in May.
The firms said the collaboration comes at a time when the appetite for decentralised energy services in the UK is growing, with more focus being placed on the use of renewable technologies that continue to de-carbonise the energy supply for UK residents and businesses.
Russ Burton, SHARC’s Chief Operating Officer, said: “The team at SHARC have been tireless in their efforts to champion and promote the value of the waste heat that runs through our sewage lines every day and we are encouraged by the vision and enthusiasm that Engie is demonstrating in supporting our activities.”
Ben Watts, Innovation and Solutions Director at Engie, said: “The decarbonisation of heat is a nationally important issue which Engie is looking to solve at a local level. We are delighted that SHARC entered this call and we look forward to developing projects together.”
