This report presents a variation on the outline business case, originally presented to Cabinet on 12 December 2018, required in order to proceed with the recommended sustainable heat solution for the Sovereign Leisure Centre.
The proposal is to install a heat pump extracting heat from the Southern Water main sewer asset that runs along Prince Charles Parade to provide heat for the Leisure Centre.
The purpose is to reduce the carbon emissions and utility costs of this significant/flagship? council development.
To agree a budget of up to £115k to carry out additional feasibility and design work for a stand alone energy centre at the Sovereign Centre site; this could potentially provide low carbon heat sourced from the embedded energy in the nearby sewer network. If viable, a decision to invest will be considered at the February 2020 Cabinet.
