Press Release: LC Energy wins contract to supply Godalming Leisure Centre with Woodchip

Renewable energy project sets a gold standard in Godalming

One of the country’s top specialists in wood fuel has joined forces with Godalming’s new leisure centre, owned by Waverley Borough Council, to create a renewable energy project which will lead the field of sustainable public sector development in the UK.

Surrey-based LC Energy will exclusively supply fuel to the leisure centre’s new biomass heating system and will deliver 150 tonnes of woodchip annually over the next five years, supporting 20% of the centre’s energy needs. The woodchip will be sourced from local and sustainable wood stocks and delivered from Shere, just 8 miles from the new facility, making the project one of the most efficient energy sourcing strategies within the UK.

As sustainably harvested biomass fuel is very close to carbon neutral – taking carbon out of the atmosphere while it is growing, and returning it as it burns -its carbon footprint is made during the delivery process. If the miles the fuel travels are kept to a minimum, so too is the environmental impact.

Mark Lebus, managing director of LC Energy commented: “Given the short distance between woodland and boiler, it’s our understanding that this project represents one of most eco-friendly examples of public sector energy sourcing in the UK. It’s a fantastic example of what can be achieved when we think locally, but act globally.”
