Cogeneration Or Combined Heat And Power
You Simply Cannot Find A More Efficient Way To Make Use Of Power
New ‘cogeneration’ technology from our partner Flex Energy, is highly efficient because it produces electric and thermal energy at the same time. Now you can use the "waste" heat for heated water, air and even to run absorption chillers for cooling!
Extremely low maintenance – There is only one moving part, running on air bearings, there is nothing to wear and no oil or lubricants to replace. This means downtime for maintenance will be measured in hours, rather than weeks or months like with diesel generators.
Microturbines are CARB certified, environmentally friendly technology, with the lowest emissions of any carbon fuel generation.
The systems are flexible and easy to scale in the future, with new microturbines simply added to the existing sequence.
Microturbine systems are extremely compact compared with solar and wind generation systems.
Ease of permitting – including short lead times and rapid project deployment.

CHP requires less fuel to produce a given energy output and avoids transmission and distribution losses that occur when electricity travels over power lines.
Because less fuel is burned to produce each unit of energy output and because transmission and distribution losses are avoided, CHP reduces emissions of greenhouse gases and other air pollutants.
CHP can save facilities considerable money on their energy bills due to its high efficiency, and it can provide a hedge against electricity cost increases.
Unreliable electricity service represents a quantifiable business, safety, and health risk for some companies and organizations. CHP is an on-site generation resource and can be designed to support continued operations in the event of a disaster or grid disruption by continuing to provide reliable electricity.
