Combined Heat and Power
Cogeneration or combined heat and power is the use of a power station or heat engine to generate electricity and useful heat at the same time
What is Combined Heat and Power?
CHP or cogeneration is the process of producing usable heat and electricity at the same time. CHP is a highly efficient process that captures and utilises the heat that is a by-product of the electricity process.
In generating heat and power simultaneously, CHP can reduce carbon emissions by up to 30% in comparison to the separate means of conventional generation with a boiler and a power station.
This method is an incredibly efficient process. Utilising the thermal energy that would be otherwise wasted. This makes CHP a suitable alternative to separate gas and electricity generation. Reducing your carbon footprint significantly and your energy efficiency.
The advantages of using CHP
- Reduction in energy costs of up to 40%
- Helps new constructions meet carbon legislation compliance
- Increase energy security
- Legislative and new building benefits
- Renewable obligation certificate compliance
- Renewable heat incentives
- Opportunity to reduce your Co2 and So2 emissions
