Simply put, Cogeneration is the use of one fuel source to provide two kinds of energy, usually electricity and heat. Cogeneration captures and utilizes the heat from power generation for other purposes such as steam generation, absorption chilling as well as space and water heating. These systems can be powered by natural gas. By capturing and utilising the waste heat, these systems consume only 50% of the fuel burned by a central power station to provide the same energy output.
Burning less fuel means fewer greenhouse gas emissions and therefore, CO2 production is cut in half. Cogeneration systems can save up to 35% on overall energy costs, whilst the other benefits include:
- Eligibility for CHP tax credits
- Eligibility for carbon credits
- Reduced running costs
- Improved reliability of electrical supply
- Maximize capital utilisation
