Cogeneration

Along with benefiting the environment, cogeneration can have a big benefit for your business by lowering your energy costs and providing reliable heat and power.

Cogeneration is the most efficient way to generate energy from fossil fuels.

Cogeneration, also known as Combined Heat and Power (CHP), is a process that enables the simultaneous generation of electrical and thermal power from a single fuel source. Cogeneration can be illustrated by the addition of a waste heat recovery boiler to a gas turbine generator set in order to recover the high quality heat from the gas turbine’s exhaust for steam and/or hot water production.

Applying the cogeneration technique, allows the production of electricity at an efficiency rate above 85%, whichis significantly higher than any large central power plant efficiency. Since cogeneration installations are primarily decentralised, they provide other significant advantages in addition to being highly efficient:

  • secure local energy supply
  • contribution to global environmental improvement
  • development of local competence in energy efficiency
  • reduction in energy costs
  • high power density
  • reduced reliability on the grid
