What is CHP?
Combined Heat and Power, Cogeneration, or CHP is the production of heat and power simultaneously to minimise wasted energy.
Combined Heat and Power (CHP) is an efficient technology that generates electricity and utilises the heat produced as thermal energy. This thermal energy can then be used for a multitude of heating, cooling and industrial processes.
It takes heat and energy that would have otherwise been wasted and puts it to productive use, making it a fantastic way to reduce carbon emissions.
Advantages of CHP
CHP is a brilliant renewable energy choice, with an average efficiency rate of over 80%. Best used as a blended solution alongside other renewable technologies, CPH increases fuel supply security and transmission/distribution losses are reduced.
Alongside this, CHP is also great for your business as it typically saves around 20% on energy bills, making it easy for you to invest money elsewhere.
CHP typically has extremely efficient systems – with engines generating both heat and electricity all while being less dependent on The Grid.
Also, CPH uses wasted energy so operators can save up to 30% on carbon emissions, making it an ideal solution for those wanting to reduce their carbon footprint whilst also reducing their consumption and costs.
