Low Carbon Development Moves Forward in Staffs

Date posted: July 28, 2020

A 2,300-home low carbon development which includes plans for business units and Staffordshire’s first all-through school is moving forward.

ENGIE UK is continuing demolition work at the former Rugeley Power Station site to make way for their development that will integrate innovative, low carbon energy solutions on site.

ENGIE UK has been working closely with both district councils and Staffordshire County Council to bring the proposals forward. It has also commissioned Keele University as one of several partners to collaborate on a Rugeley-wide energy system innovation.

Using the combined expertise of ENGIE and Keele University in this field, which has included the university’s on-campus Smart Energy Network Demonstrator, the partners will bring forward designs for a Smart Local Energy System (SLES). This aims to reduce carbon and energy costs for current Rugeley residents as well as future residents of the mixed-use development, whilst providing a catalyst for town regeneration and employment creation.
