New Heat and Power unit for Lewes

A meeting organised by LTP and chaired by John Webber was held at Priory School in January 2010 to consider the feasibility of installing a combined heat and power unit to serve the school the leisure centre and the college situated in Mountfield Road.  Considerable progress was made and money for a feasibility study was pledged from the Carbon Trust and ESCC. Unfortunately the credit crunch arrived and the money disappeared. However Chris Rowlands of OVESCO, who attended the original meeting, has been successful in getting a grant from LEAF, the new fund set up by environment minister Chris Huhne . So it looks as though our efforts of two years ago were not entirely in vain.
