Combined Heat and Power (CHP)

Combined heat and power is the burning of a fuel in an engine. The engine is used to drive a generator to produce electricity and the by-product of heat from operating the engine is captured and used as well.

Combined heat and power is the burning of a fuel, usually an oil derivative or gas, in an engine. The engine is used to drive a generator to produce electricity and the by-product of heat from operating the engine is captured and used as well.

In some instances CHP is viable without the utilisation of the heat although if it can be captured and used either to heat a building or in an industrial process it significantly enhances the value of using the CHP and the financial return from its operation.

Our Energy Team is able to help with all aspect of CHP feasibility, project implementation and operational advice.
