Combined Heat & Power
Generate both heat and electricity from a single source
A Simple Way to Save Energy
What Exactly is Cogeneration?
A conventional power plant makes electricity using a fairly inefficient process: A fossil fuel such as oil, coal, or natural gas is burned in a giant furnace which boils water and makes steam. The steam drives a turnbine, the turbine drives a generator which makes electricity.
The trouble with this process is: A LOT of energy is wasted in every step.
Cogeneration (also called combined heat and power, or CHP), commonly referred to as ‘Cogen’, fixes this problem by making both the electricity and heat at the same time.
Make Heat & Electricity
Why is Cogeneration so Efficient?
The answer lies in cogen’s ability to burn one fuel source (natural gas) and get two energy outputs in return (electricity and heat).
Facilities that have large heating requirements can use cogen to generate electricity from the heat they already use; reducing the amount of electricity purchased from their utility or supplier.
And because it’s on-site, reductions in demand, delivery, and line-loss provide additional energy savings.
And let’s not forget that by improving energy efficiency, your facility will be emitting less greenhouse gases, making cogen an asset to your sustainability goals.
Less Risk. More Reward.
