What is Combined Heat and Power (CHP)?

Combined Heat and Power (CHP) offers a more reliable, cost-efficient, and sustainable alternative to traditional energy solutions.

Combined Heat and Power (CHP), also known as cogeneration, uses a single fuel source, usually natural gas, LPG, or biogas, to generate both heat and electricity in a single process.

CHP systems can be purchased and installed on-site for business use. Electricity and heat generated by the system is used to power the premises directly. This method of power generation can offer energy savings of up to 40%. It is also a more environmentally-friendly and sustainable alternative to traditional sources.

How Does CHP Work?

Traditional methods of generating electricity do not capture the heat that is created in the process. These methods are only about 35-50% efficient. Combined Heat and Power (CHP) systems reduce waste by capturing and utilising this heat. They typically exceed 80% efficiency.

So, how do CHP systems work?

1

One fuel source, usually gas, is introduced to the CHP system.

2

Power is generated from the CHP engine. This electricity is used to power the site.

3

The heat produced in this process is captured and made available for use on the premises.
