What Is Combined Heat and Power?
An excellent way to create a more energy-efficient business – Combined Heat and Power (CHP) is designed to generate electricity then capture the excess heat that would otherwise be wasted. This can then be used to provide hot water for industrial and commercial processes or to warm your premises or provide air conditioning.
At Ampergia, our knowledgeable consultants match businesses with tailored CHP solutions, perfect for taking the first steps to create a greener future for your brand. For those looking to maximise sustainability, CHP is ideal for combining with your renewable energy generator to begin your journey to self-sufficiency.
The CHP Process Is Straightforward
Able to efficiently utilise natural gas or other fuel types to generate power, CHP is suited to all manner of commercial property types from hotels and leisure centres to industrial sites. And even better, the process couldn’t be more straightforward:
Burn Renewable Fuel
Natural gas or other renewable fuel is burned in a combustion chamber to produce a flow of hot gas.
The hot gas powers a turbine, which is combined with a generator to create electricity.
Create Hot Water
The hot gas then moves onto a heat recovery boiler used to provide water heating.
Capture Any Excess
Any excess heat is captured in a steam turbine to produce more electricity.
Power Air Conditioning
This heat can also be used to drive an absorption chiller to power air conditioning.
