Combined Heat and Power (CHP)

CHP is a system that converts a single fuel source into both electricity and heat, giving you an energy-efficient, low carbon, cost-effective alternative to traditional energy.

How does it work?

•  At the heart of a CHP installation is a gas powered electricity generator.

• The CHP generator is a combination of a gas powered engine and a generator unit.

• The engine turns the generator to produce electricity for use onsite.

• This process also generates amounts of heat.

• The CHP unit captures this heat so it can be used towards heating the building or other processes.

• This heat can also be cooled to help towards some types of air conditioning and chilling requirements.

Customer case study - Reckitt Benckiser 

E.ON are planning, building, financing and operating a 1.5MW
CHP plant to provide heat and power for Reckitt Benckiser.

 The total package is expected to save us around 20% in energy
costs and 4,300 tonnes in CO2 a year, helping us achieve our
target to reduce our carbon footprint 30% by 2020.
