Combined Heat and Power (CHP)

Combined Heat and Power is the simultaneous production of electricity and heat from the same fuel source, integrating the production of usable heat and power in one single, highly efficient process.

Unlike conventional methods of electricity production, Combined Heat and Power systems utilise excess heat energy from electricity production for space, water or process heating. Heat from a CHP plant can also be used to generate cooling by using an absorption chiller unit in a process known as ‘tri-generation’.
