Technologies: Combined Heat and Power
Combined Heat and Power
Combined Heat and Power (CHP) is sometimes called “co-generation” because it delivers two forms of energy: affordable electricity plus heat or hot water production. CGE Energy offers these efficient CHP installations that squeezes more usable energy out of each unit of fuel used.
Best Use of Energy
We largely use Capstone microturbines, the world’s leading manufacturer of CHP microturbine power generation systems, to fit CHP within the integrated solution we bring to our clients. Based on your facility, our engineers will properly size these proven natural gas-fueled engine to generate electricity and best utilize the free “waste” heat that is recovered with CHP.
Advantages and Highlights
One Moving Part
CHP requires minimal maintenance with no lubricants or coolants needed.
Optimized for Your Needs
Expandable up to 30MW, we size your CHP system based on the balance of your electricity load and thermal (heat) needs.
Extend Equipment Life
By installing CHP, you may reduce wear and tear on existing mechanical equipment, such as boilers.
Unlike traditional energy that loses 2/3 of it usefulness, CHP is 80-90% efficient.
Get Combined Heat & Power at your Facility
CGE Energy offers CHP systems through direct sales, financing or, if applicable, as part of the CGE Sustain Program. CGE Sustain allows you to implement energy efficiency and renewable energy upgrades to your facility with immediate positive cash flow and no capital expenditure upfront cost.
