University of Leicester Goes Green

Green Leicester The University of Leicester has said it wants to build two combined heat and power plants which would provide electricity for its campus. These would be fed with high-energy pellets made of recycled waste or wood to produce steam that would run a turbine and create electricity. The energy produced by wind turbines could also fed into the system. These energy hubs could be used as key parts of a network to pipe power to buildings across city of Leicester.
The cost of the scheme, believed to be more than £40 million, could be financed either by Leicester City Council, borrowing the money, or by a public-private partnership.
