Combined Heat and Power (Cogeneration) Systems

Combined heat and power process also known as cogeneration, is the simultaneous production of thermal and electric energy from a single fuel source (oil, gas, biomass, biogas, coal, etc.)

Currently the CHP systems are affordable not only for commercial buildings but also for homeowners.

The CHP engines producing electricity that can be internal combustion or Stirling engines. The micro-CHP installations applicable for residential buildings usually run on propane, natural gas, or even solar energy or biomass.   

The CHP systems offering combined heat and power have efficiency of approximately 90%.
