What are cogeneration systems and what are the main benefits they offer?
Cogeneration is the combined production of electrical energy and heat generated from a single energy source, ensuring further energy savings compared with separate production.
The most widely used cogeneration technologies involve the combustion of fuels, such as natural gas, GPL, diesel, biogas, bio-methane, vegetable oil or biomass.
- Improve overall efficiency of energy usage, combining the production of useful heat and electric energy in a single generator
- Reduce risks of power cuts due to grid problems
- Can qualify for economic incentives relating to energy efficiency projects.
