Cogeneration, or CHP (combined heat and power), and tri-generation, or CCHP tap the full potential of on-site power generation to manage overall energy consumption for Hotels, hospitals, manufacturers, and industrial enterprises. By capturing the heat that is normally lost during power generation, a cogeneration facility can supply steam or hot water as well as reliable, off-grid power. A tri-generation facility can supply cooling in addition to heat and off-grid power.
Combined heat and power (CHP) sometimes called cogeneration is an integrated set of technologies for the simultaneous, on-site production of electricity and heat.
Combined heat and power (CHP) positively impacts the health of local economies and supports national policy goals in a number of ways. Specifically, CHP can
Combined Cooling, Heat and Power (CCHP), or tri generation as it is also known, is the most economical and environmentally sound way to generate electricity, heat and cooling, making it the ideal solution for organizations which have significant cooling requirements. CCHP energy schemes integrate Combined Heat and Power (CHP) systems with absorption chillers. Waste heat provides energy to produce chilled water which is then used for cooling.
The economic benefits of tri-generation energy schemes it backs its projects with a guarantee of significant savings per annum and has a strong track record of far exceeding these guarantees.
It offers organizations a higher level of energy security, removing their reliance on the National Grid and putting their energy generation under their own control, allowing for greater flexibility.
