Combined Heat and Power

Combined Heat and Power

Our Combined Heat and Power (CHP) solution is a sustainable, efficient, cost-effective, and low carbon source of energy. A CHP captures your business’ excess energy and turns it into electricity and heat.

Increased electricity demand, escalating costs, pressure on the grid and a greater drive towards sustainability mean that businesses are looking for alternatives to energy supply – one that enables efficient on-site energy control.

Our Combined Heat and Power (CHP) solution captures your business’ excess energy and turns it into electricity and heat. Meaning you can save more on your energy costs, reduce your carbon footprint and become less reliant on the grid.  

CHP in a nutshell

In essence, Combined Heat & Power could enable you to generate your own energy, capture the generated heat and use it to offset your energy bills – and your carbon emissions.

What is a CHP?

CHP is a sustainable, efficient, cost-effective, and low carbon source of energy. CHP plants generate power and heat simultaneously on the business’s own site.

At present, electricity is generated by power plants far away from the point of consumption. All of the heat created during the generation process is dumped as waste. In a CHP, that heat is captured for use in the building or buildings served by the plant. That in itself considerably reduces energy costs and carbon emissions. In addition, there is no loss of power between the generating plant and the customer as happens in the transmission network at present.

CHP plants are designed to be able to use hydrogen, biogases and blends of those with natural gas. This means they are future proofed to be able to use decarbonised gases as they become available. This will further reduce carbon emissions over time.
