Cogeneration, or combined heat and power (CHP), turns what would normally be the thermal inefficiency of power generation into usable energy. These are turnkey installations that generate both electricity and usable thermal energy within a single, integrated system.

Waste-heat recovery systems are possible for heating, cooling, dehumidification, and even process applications, and can be integrated into existing building infrastructure. These systems are located at or near the point of consumption, allowing the heat that would normally be lost in the power generation process to be recovered to provide needed heating and/or cooling for the nearby facility. There are few geographic limitations, and they are quick to deploy.

CHP also works seamlessly across different technologies. Gas turbines and internal combustion engines can work with heat recovery units, while steam boilers can be paired with a steam turbine.


Increase Energy Security

CHP systems increase energy security by producing energy at the point of use

Variety of Fuels

CHP can be created from a variety of fuel sources, both fossil- and renewable-based

Improved Effeciency

Itʼs not unreasonable to expect 65-75% efficiency, as compared to a national
average of ~50% for these services when separately provided.
