SHEFFIELD, England, March 13 /CNW/ - Disenco Energy plc today announces
that it is in detailed discussions with major utilities in the UK, mainland
Europe and North America and expects to shortly complete commercial
relationships with them for the distribution of its home energy producing and
micro-combined heat and power technology appliance HomePowerPlant (HPP).
Disenco believes utilities are a key route to market for its appliance
due to the combination of radical change to distributed energy and the savings
represented by this m-CHP technology from both an ecological as well financial
Disenco yesterday confirmed commercial availability of its HPP appliance
from Q3, 2008. A better and greener solution to powering a house or office
than conventional boilers or furnaces, HPP produces all of the heat, hot water
and on average 50% of the electrical demand of a modern house and can satisfy
up to 70% of peak load electrical demand.
Energy costs in a typical UK residential property are calculated to be
reduced by between 25% to 35% using HPP with a simultaneous 2 to 4 tonnes
reduction in carbon emissions representing nearly 70% of the emissions of the
typical UK home. Excess electricity generated in this green manner, from what
would otherwise be waste heat, can be exported and sold to the national grid
or utility for use by other consumers who can then benefit from this green
Small medium enterprises (SMEs) will also benefit significantly from the
use of the appliance, with their heat loads and run times being longer and
therefore generating larger energy savings and carbon reductions of up to
20 tonnes per year.
The HPP will significantly reduce the peak demand for grid supplied
electricity and will assist governments in their decision making processes
surrounding future grid infrastructure and centralized power generation
More information on the HPP appliance and the calculation of its energy
and carbon saving credentials can be found on the company's website at

(DIS.V) and plans to list on London's AIM market this year.
