Cogeneration – Combined Heat & Power

Cogeneration, also known as Combined Heat and Power (CHP), is the simultaneous production of two forms of energy – electricity and heat – from a single fuel source. Cogeneration uses a natural gas-powered engine to generate electricity on site and converts the waste heat from the engine into usable heat for space heating, process heat for manufacturing, domestic hot water, heating for swimming pools and similar applications.

On site Cogeneration Systems have a total efficiency of up to 85%, as compared to the 30% efficiency of coal-fired grid-supplied electricity.

Cogeneration systems use natural gas or biogas powered engines to produe electricity on site. Ideally for high energy users with constant demands for electricity and heat, Cogeneration can reduce energy costs and carbon emissions by up to 50%.

Biogas is derived from the natural breakdown of organic matter and utilising it as a fuel has a double environmental benefit – it is a carbon neutral fuel providing the same advantages as mains gas fired CHP, and it saves the release of the methane gas to the atmosphere where it is potentially more harmful to the environment.
