Cogeneration or combined heat and power (CHP)

Cogeneration or combined heat and power (CHP)

Cogeneration or combined heat and power (CHP) is the most effective and efficient form of power generation. As it name indicates cogeneration works on concept of producing two different form of energy by using one single source of fuel. Out of these two forms one is the heat or thermal energy and other one is either electrical or mechanical energy. Cogeneration is combined process of producing electricity and utilizing waste heat through exhaust or Jacket Water (recoverable heat) to produce steam, hot water etc.

Benefits of Cogeneration Application (CHP)

  • Increased efficiency of energy conversion and utilization.
  • Lower emissions to the environment, in particular of CO2, the main greenhouse gas.
  • Large cost savings, providing additional competitiveness for industrial and commercial users.
