Produce More with Less
Combined Heat and Power (CHP)
Combined Heat and Power (CHP) or cogeneration, is an efficient and environmentally conscious take on traditional power generation. The Environmental Protection Agency defines CHP as the onsite, simultaneous production of electricity and heat from a single fuel source. CHP systems provide less expensive heat and electricity, they are more efficient, and they reduce pollutants in the air by capturing the “waste heat” lost by conventional power generation and then recycling it to create chilled water, hot water or steam. Even though you may not be familiar with the waste heat from power generation, you have experienced waste heat everywhere. For example, it’s what makes your kitchen hot while you’re cooking, it’s the reason light bulbs are hot, it’s why your car’s radiator is so hot, and it’s why your legs feel warm while using your laptop on your lap.

CHPs are inherently more efficient than any conventional alternative.
Instead of venting the waste heat given off while generating power, a CHP captures it and turns it into usable chilled water, hot water, or steam. By reusing waste heat, CHPs can reach efficiencies of over 90% while conventional systems typically go no higher than 60%. The result is savings on energy costs, a reduced environmental footprint, more reliable power, and reduced electric transmission grid congestion.
