When the Royal Navy's new aircraft carriers arrived in Portsmouth, the base faced a critical issue – how to find enough electricity.

HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales doubled the base's energy use. In fact, the load was so great there was a danger it would impact power supplies to the city itself.

To meet the need, they built a new 13 megawatt combined heat and power plant, capable of producing enough electricity to fully power the base, and with the added bonus of supplying heat as well.
