CHP – Combined Heat and Power


CHP is first and foremost an energy efficiency technology. It allows you to reduce power consumption without compromising the quality and reliability of the energy supply.

The CHP generates electricity whilst also capturing usable heat that is produced in this process. This contrasts with conventional ways of generating electricity where vast amounts of heat is simply wasted. CHP plants are designed to meet your immediate power requirements (consumption & export), heating and increasingly cooling.

The Benefits

  • Enhanced security of supply, making energy go further, through more efficient use of fuel – regardless of whether the fuel is renewable or fossil
  • Reduction in the cost of energy and improving the competitiveness of industry and business
  • Flexible and responsive heat supplies – the thermal energy (heating or cooling) produced by CHP can be easily stored and later delivered to meet demand
  • Reduced overall demand from centralised plants, such as large scale coal or gas fired power stations
