Swimming Pools and Leisure Centers
Swimming pool halls consume more energy per unit area than almost any other building type, typically using around five times as much energy per square metre as offices. There is therefore significant potential for financial and carbon savings through implementation of effective control strategies, energy efficiency technologies and low carbon heating and power plant.
Combined heat and power (CHP) is ideally suited to swimming pool applications, as there is a constant demand for both heating and electricity that exists all year round. CHP will reduce electricity bills by lowering the high demand for expensive grid electricity that is associated with swimming pool pumps and fans, and will simultaneously produce heat for water and space heating.
Leisure centers without swimming pools will still have a significant demand for heat and power for use in showers, air conditioning, heating of sports halls etc; low cost heating systems such as biomass and CHP will therefore often represent a cost-effective solution.
