Cost savings:
283400€ / Annual: € 283 400 (£ 260 000)
Resource type:
Heating
Resource saving:
Annual: reduced gas consumption; 8 666 667 kWh or 1 598 567 kg CO2 equivalent
Investment cost:
218000€ / € 218 000 (£ 200 000) per project; the scale of the project is based on heating demand; maintenance is minimal if correctly installed; risks are minimal upon installation
Assumptions taken in the presentation of the above performance indicators:

Installation of dual fuel burners to replace heavy oil burners; works where site currently uses heavy fuel oil for boilers but have a gas connection or where current boilers are inefficient; assumes a site with an annual 17 500 000 kWh heat demand currently using heavy fuel oil replaced with dual gas burners

Case for dual burners

Installation of dual fuel burners to replace heavy oil burners, with the aim of increasing fuel-heat effectiveness and avoiding radiation heat loss, among others.

Steam and high-temperature hot water (HTHW) boilers is a category of technologies commonly used in industrial sectors and in some applications in public and commercial organisations. HTHW boilers are very energy intensive and therefore offer many opportunities for energy and cost savings.

The Carbon Trust anticipates potential low-cost, medium-cost, and longer-term savings achieved in boiler performance and steam distribution, as well as combustion efficiency, heat transfer efficiency, and boiler heat loss (or thermal integrity) for efficiency maintenance.
