Cogeneration Benefits 

The separate production of electricity and heat, as widely applied in most U.S. buildings and industrial facilities, results in low efficiency. A smart decentralized CHP cogeneration solution uses less fuel and achieves much higher efficiencies. The significant increase in efficiency with CHP results in lower fuel consumption and reduced emissions compared with separate generation of heat and power.

CHP is first and foremost an energy efficiency technology leading to significant cost savings. It provides a means to substantially reduce fuel, or “primary energy”, consumption without compromising the quality and reliability of the energy supply to consumers. Consequently it provides a cost-effective means of generating cleaner low-carbon or renewable energy.

CHP can boost a company’s competitiveness by increasing the efficiency and productivity of fuel use. Dollars saved on energy are available to spend on other goods and services, promoting economic growth. Independent research has shown that savings are retained in the local economy and generate greater economic benefit than the dollars spent on energy. Recovery and productive use of waste heat from power generation is a critical first step in a productivity-oriented environmental strategy.

Further, next to all the economic advantages, CHP is an economically productive approach to reducing air pollutants through mass pollution prevention, whereas traditional pollution control achieved solely through flue gas treatment provides no profitable output and actually reduces efficiency and useful energy output. CHP provides the following direct benefits:
