heat and electricity
from a single fuel source.
Combined Heat and Power – Cogeneration is a highly efficient on-site electricity generation that captures energy that would otherwise be wasted to provide useful energy such as steam and hot water.
Simultaneously generating both heat and electricity from a single fuel source, combined heat and power (CHP) systems are a highly cost-effective alternative to traditional mains supply.
CHP represents a series of proven, reliable and cost – effective technologies that are already making an important contribution to meeting global heat and electricity demand.
With more than a decade’s experience in the planning, assessment, specification and installation of CHP equipment, CooperÖstlund works in close partnership with each of its clients to advise on the best solution.
Undertaking a comprehensive site analysis programme, engineers firstly scrutinise the required energy outputs, feedstock regularity and on-site applications, before advising a precise engine size, type and manufacturer.
Rather than a ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution, this bespoke approach means that each site will operate at optimum efficiency – delivering the maximum possible value. Simple, comprehensive, effective.
With plants typically located close to the end user, energy transportation and distribution losses are minimised, significantly improving efficiency and thus reducing total costs.
In fact, for a typical engine working at 80% efficiency, users can achieve an average 40% reduction in utility bills – simply by self-generating energy.
What’s more, sites are able to significantly reduce emissions and maximise their environmental credentials, demonstrating a true commitment to sustainability.
However, with a whole host of CHP systems available – each designed for different applications, gas types and input fuel volumes – specifying the right setup for your site is essential.
“Thanks to CooperÖstlund, I was able to source, install and comission a 250 kW engine within six weeks. Now fully operational, the facility generates more than £550,000 revenue every year.”
