Cogeneration and Trigeneration
Cogeneration is the simultaneous creation of power and heat from a fuel source, most commonly Natural Gas. Trigeneration is the added benefit of cooling through an absorption chiller.
Industry’s that benefit most from Cogeneration.
- Food Processing and Manufacturing Plants
- Aquatic Centres
- Hotels and Commercial buildings
- High Power and Heat consuming Industries
A generator converts natural gas to electricity at 35-45% efficiency and emits 50%-60% less CO2 then typical grid supplied power. The heat generated from this process is also captured and used to further increase the systems efficiency by 30-40%.
This makes Cogeneration a great choice for industry’s that have a consistent use for power and heat and are looking to decrease their operational costs and carbon foot print.
