Combined heat and power (CHP) is the simultaneous cogeneration of electricity and heat. Cogeneration is a highly efficient form of energy conversion and using gas engines it can achieve primary energy savings of approximately 40% compared to the separate purchase of electricity from the electricity grid and gas for use in a boiler.

What is CHP?
Combined Heat and Power or CHP, is the simultaneous production of both heat and electricity – from one fuel source, generally natural gas. A CHP system recovers the heat normally lost in electricity generation for use in heating, dehumidification and other processes even including cooling.
In other words, it utilises the heat produced in electricity generation rather than releasing it wastefully into the atmosphere. CHP delivers remarkable efficiency, significant cost savings and environmental benefits.
As a form of energy, electricity is more expensive to generate than heat. In a typical CHP installation, the emphasis is on producing electricity at a lower cost to displace some or all of the more expensive power that would otherwise be bought from the electricity grid.
At the same time, the heat produced from the plant is used to replace heat provided from a conventional boiler.
CHP systems can provide energy savings of 20% – 25%, and in some cases up to 35%.
