Combined heat and power

Generate your own energy with one of the most sustainable and economical ways of using otherwise wasted heat.

What is combined heat and power?

A combined heat and power (CHP) unit allows on-site electricity generation, while the heat produced from the process is captured and used elsewhere in your building. Saving you up to 20% on your energy costs.

Reduce your costs

On-site generation with a CHP unit can reduce energy costs by up to 20%, with the potential to sell excess electricity back to the grid.

Make use of excess heat

The excess heat you generate can be used to warm your building, or it can be converted and used for air conditioning.

Secure your supply

Reducing your dependency on the electricity grid with a CHP unit, will stabilise your energy supply and lower your risk of disruption.

How CHP works

A combined heat and power unit works by converting fuel into electricity through a generator to power on-site operations.

The heat generated during this process is then captured and either used for heating and hot water, or as an absorption chiller converting the heat into air conditioning.
