Cogeneration is a combined process of the simultaneous production of heat and electric energy inside a single device called the cogeneration unit.
Model range of cogeneration gas piston power plants
Cogeneration uses highly efficiently the primary source of energy - gas to produce two forms of useful energy - heat and electricity.
Scheme for separate production of electricity and heat
The scheme of a cogeneration power plant for the production of electricity and heat
The main advantage of cogeneration over conventional thermoelectric power plants is that the energy conversion here is more efficient. In other words, the cogeneration system allows the use of heat that is usually simply lost. At the same time, the need for purchased energy is reduced by the amount of generated heat and electric energy, which helps to reduce production costs. With low capital and operating costs, these cogeneration power plants are designed to give owners and investors the maximum possible returns on their investments.
Cogeneration plants have remarkable features: attractive price of electricity and heat, proximity to the consumer, lack of need for expensive power lines and substations, environmental safety, ease of installation and many other factors.
With low capital and operating costs, these cogeneration power plants are designed to give owners and investors the maximum possible return on their investment.
