Generation is an efficient on–site power system that produces electric power and thermal energy for heat, steam or air conditioning.
This form of power generation is known today by many names and acronyms.
Cogeneration, or combined heat and power (CHP) are
CHP is not a single
technology, but an integrated energy system that can
be modified depending upon the needs of the energy end
These systems simply capture and utilize excess heat
generated during the production of electric power. CHP
systems offer economic, environmental and
reliability-related compared to power generation
facilities that produce only electricity.
By capturing and using the waste heat, these systems
normally consume 50 percent of the fuel burned by a central power station to provide an equivalent amount of energy.
Because greenhouse gas emissions are related to the amount of fuel burned, CO2 production
can also cut in half using a distributed generation
This website will
provide you information on the various technologies
available to produce your own power with recoverable
heat. By making continuous use of both electricity and thermal energy,
you can save up to 35 percent on overall energy costs.
