This utilises the heat produced in electricity generation
rather than releasing it into the atmosphere which is wasteful.
In typical conventional power generation, much
of the total energy input is wasted.
Combined Heat and Power (CHP), or co-generation
(sometimes referred to as ‘total energy’), is where
the heat produced in electricity generation is put to good use, rather than wasted
into the atmosphere. This helps to reach efficiencies in excess of 80%.
Key aspects of an Industrial CHP unit
- Typically a good CHP unit can deliver an increase of 20% / 25% in efficiency
against the separate energy system it replaces.
- Basically, the industrial CHP concept is all about using whatever heat or power
source there is simultaneously with no extra cost.
- Industrial CHP is an easy solution to the energy crisis that our world is currently facing.
- It makes for an energy-efficient living that is not as heavy on the budget and not as damaging to the environment
- Through a cycle, renewable fuels as well as fossils are put to beneficial use.
- If well practiced, an industrial CHP unit can provide countless
advantages concerning the environment,
the economy, and the worldwide bout against energy crisis.
- CHP systems can save you up to 40% on your electric bill and up
to 50% of carbon dioxide emissions.
CHP is about utilising the heat produced by power i.e. natural electricity, to run many other processes instead of just releasing them to the atmosphere and to damage whatever it can there.
