Disenco Energy Confirms Q3 2008 Commercial Availability of Its Home Electricity Producing and Carbon Footprint Reducing Appliance

    SHEFFIELD, England, March 12 /CNW/ -

    -   Addressing an Annual Global Market of Approximately 20 Million Units,
        Consumers in Both Residential and Business Sectors Could Drastically
        Reduce Their Annual Energy Costs and Carbon Footprint From Q3 2008
        With Disenco 's Appliance

    Disenco Energy plc today confirms commercial availability of its unique,
micro-combined heat and power (m-CHP) appliance from Q3, 2008. The
announcement follows evaluation of the performance of production units of its
HomePowerPlant (HPP) appliance with engineering partners Prodrive and Enertek
    Several engineering enhancements have been made to Disenco's appliance
since last year's design review. These include enhanced appliance
performance/modulation, weight reduction to allow one-man installation and a
wide range of electrical power outputs to comply with varying national mains
supply requirements across the globe.
    Manufacturing agreements with chosen manufacturing partners Autocraft and
Malvern Boilers have been established and both companies are now involved in
the detailed preparations for HPP's commercial launch.
    Disenco's appliance is a better and greener solution to powering a house
or office than conventional boilers or furnaces. It 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. It is expected that
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
    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
    Servicing Disenco's appliance will be on an annual basis inline with
current maintenance legislation requirements. Unlike competing technologies,
HPP is not dependent on the European weather for its performance and requires
no specific planning permission prior to installation and commissioning. More
details on the appliance and the calculation of its energy and carbon saving
credentials for specific applications and installations can be found on the
company's website http://www.disenco.com.
    Disenco believes that a key route to market for its appliance and m-CHP
technology will be through utility companies. This is due to the combination
of radical change to distributed energy and the savings represented by this
technology from both an ecological as well as a financial aspect. Distribution
agreements with utilities are to be announced.

    The company is listed on the Toronto TSX Venture Exchange (DIS) and plans
to list on London's AIM market this year.
