||This note provides a summary of potential opportunities to recover low grade heat from the plant for use in district heat networks. It concludes that there is useful waste heat available within the plant which could be used for District Heat Networks.
- The opportunity size is 62.5 MW which is enough heat for 2,000 to 4,000 houses.
- Consideration should be given to the application of a CCUS scheme to provide heat to district heating networks.
- The CCGT + CCC onshore plants are likely to be located away from areas of high domestic or business occupation because of the hazards from Natural Gas, CO2, and HV Electricity. A leak of CO2 from the compressor coolers could lead to CO2 in the DHN circulation: this could pose a hazard to domestic users if this leaks into their homes.
