Veolia is an energy specialist who analyses customer need to ensure a guaranteed supply of sustainable, efficient energy is delivered with budget certainty.
In 1995, Veolia combined heat and power units were installed to improve energy efficiency at two of Jaguar Land Rover’smanufacturing sites in the Midlands.
Veolia has 11 CHP plants delivering low-carbon electricity and heat to the Castle Bromwich and Solihull production sites.
The Veolia Eco2Synergy scheme enables cogeneration with no capital outlay or risk. The units are supplied, installed, operated and maintained by Veolia at no cost. Electricity generated is sold at a discounted price.
