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.

Cogeneration systems:

  • 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.
