How much energy has the Energy from Waste plant (EFW) produced in 2015, 2016 and 2017?
What is this energy produced the equivalent to?
How much did it cost per annum to run per annum in these three years?
What gets incinerated at the EFW Plant in order to get up to a temperature to produce energy?
2015 = 40.67 GWh
2016 = 45.17 GWh
2017 = 43.78 GWh
This equates to:
2015 = 40,670,000 kWh or (units)
2016 = 45,170,000 kWh or (units)
2017 = 43,780,000 kWh or (units)
We do not hold information regarding the total units of electricity used on the Island however the figures can be found at the following link:
Jersey Electricity: Financial Figures and Reports
2015 = £5,934,140
2016 = £6,344,167
2017 = £6,384,732
These costs include the capital replacement maintenance costs for the respective years.
Ultra-low sulphur (ULS) gas oil is used to get the incinerator up to the required temperature. Once this temperature has been achieved the ULS Gas Oil is switched off and waste from the incinerator bunker is used to raise the steam pressure to the required level for introduction to the turbine to be converted to electrical energy.
