Combined Heat and Power (CHP)
CHP – Combined Heat and Power is an efficient technology if you work in an energy intensive business where your electricity and gas bills are a major cost.
Cogeneration (as it is also called), converts gas efficiently into power and heat on your own site.
Mini and micro systems are now also an option for smaller businesses. It is reliable, and by reducing your grid energy need significantly, it’ll drive down your costs.
You’ll also achieve better protection from power outages.

ROI on a combined heat and power unit
With grid electricity costs increasing, a 2-3 year payback on CHP plant is common. It does this chiefly by producing comparatively cheap electricity on-site. A CHP system therefore has a positive and lasting impact on your bottom line.
Additionally, a good quality CHP is exempt from paying Climate Change Levy on all gas, and electricity used on site (except for exported electricity).
