By improving efficiency, cogeneration systems can reduce energy costs associated with providing heat and electricity to a facility.
Cogeneration systems operate at the point of energy use. They provide high-quality and reliable power and heat locally to the energy user, and they also help reduce congestion on the electric grid by removing or reducing load. Cogeneration systems effectively assist the electric grid, by providing enhanced reliability in electricity transmission and distribution.
A Smaller Carbon Footprint
Because of its improved efficiency in fuel conversion, cogeneration reduces the amount of fuel burned for a given energy output and reduces the corresponding emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases.
CoGeneration produces electricity & useful heat at the same time. It takes advantage of otherwise wasted exhaust heat and processes it as steam or hot water, which can also be utilized for efficient space heating or cooling. There are many benefits to co-generation including a savings in energy costs, and a reduction of harmful emissions. As a powerful and efficient energy source, CoGeneration systems are 2 times more efficient than the electric utility company. This remarkable utilization of energy results in substantially reduced utility costs. In fact, any investment made in a co generation system will be completely recovered in just a few years.
