What is a cogeneration system?

Cogeneration is the simultaneous production of electricity (for supplying different equipment) and thermal heat (used as technological steam, heat or warm water), with the same facility, both types being used as utility.

Cogeneration offers energy savings between 15 and 40%, compared to the classical version of acquiring electricity from a supplier and producing heat in a steam power plant. Thus, due to the low cost of energy production compared to the classical, the investment in a cogeneration system becomes very attractive.

Why use a cogeneration system?

Optimize energy use and costs.
Reduce CO2 emissions.
Safety in power supply.
Reduce electricity losses.
Become independent from the power grid.
Is a solution compatible with solar panels.

The cogeneration plant can deliver heat at high temperature      (> 80°C) efficiently.

Technical consultancy to implement feasible cogeneration solution.

When the cogeneration system is feasible?

When you use the system more than 5000-6000 hours/year.
Cost ratio MWh electrical / MWh thermal > 3.
There is a simultaneous consumption of electrical and thermal energy.
The energy invoice has a major share in the costs of your operations.
