Cogeneration is the simultaneous production of two useful forms of energy: high-temperature heat and electricity generated from a single fuel source. For this reason, Cogeneration is also referred to as Combined Heat and Power (CHP).
Cogeneration plants are energy-efficient plants. In the same process where mechanical energy is used for electrical energy generation, waste heat is used to produce useful thermal energy.
The thermal equipment is complemented with the electrical and control parts for the operation of the plant.
Benefits of Cogeneration
- Significantly improves a building’s environmental ratings
- Increases fuel efficiency
- Reduces energy costs
- Reduces greenhouse gas emissions (typically by up to two-thirds)
- Increases security and continuity of energy supply.
Trigeneration is an extension of Cogeneration that involves the simultaneous production of electricity, heating and cooling. Trigeneration is often referred to as combined cooling, heat and power – or CCHP for short.
Trigeneration. In those processes where besides heat needs large amounts of cold is required, the installation of an absorption machine is advisable.
We supply the integrated control system for cogeneration and Trigeneration Plants for District Heating, Greenhouses, Textile Plants.
Benefits of Trigeneration
- Onsite, high efficiency production of electricity and heat
- Reduce site CO2 emissions by up to 60% over the business as usual by generating electricity onsite using natural gas.
- Capture and reuse energy in the generator waste streams for new absorption chiller.
- Provide energy efficient cooling using waste heat
- Reduce electricity network consumption (kWh) charges.
- Achieve a total system thermal efficiency of up to 80%.
