Combined Heat and Power (CHP) units are compact energy generation units that provide a de-centralised supply of heat and power with a consumer focus at an overall efficiency of around 90%. CHP units are used to cover the heating base load and are complemented by peak load boilers.
The benefits of a CHP unit is that it operates with great environmental responsibility. It save energy of approx. 36% CO2 emissions and offers a tax efficient investment which provides a helpful cashflow boost and shortens the payback period.
A CHP unit can reduce the potential cost impact of carbon reduction commitment legislation in
the future as it has a high operational reliability with short servicing times which means the user
has reduced costs.
