Combined heat, cooling and power (CHP)
Cogeneration: A prime example of efficient use of energy.
CHP units are units that produce heat and electricity simultaneously. It can use up to 90 percent of the energy - compared with conventional power generation efficiency is usually less than 35 percent (power plants).
The new CHP Act (valid from January 2009) offers numerous improvements over the previous CHP Act. Thus, the feed-in tariff or decrease the output of the CHP-generated electricity is much improved and easier.
The investment can pay for itself after a few years. We deliver the profitability calculation, so you can plan exactly.
Their fields of application are various:
Residence, swimming pool, hotel, manufacturing plant. As a predominantly fossil energie or renewable hydrocarbons such as fuel oil, vegetable oil, biodiesel, biogas and natural gas or wood pellets are used. The economic (and thus the ecological) basic idea of the heat-controlled operation is to also utilize generated heat and eletrical energy at in site. Not required power can be fed into the public power grid.
