Advanced technology for better efficiency

How does a CHP function?

A CHP consists of an engine alternator unit, including the heat exchangers.

That means:
Alternators are driven by gas powered combustion engines.
Normally, the resulting thermal energy remains unused. However, in CHP-units this energy is being used through heat exchangers and thus reduces heating cost

The efficiency factor of the unit is calculated as follows:

Efficiency factor% =
Produced heat and electricity : needed fuel

Besides the use of the waste heat, it can also be used via absorption technology to produce cold air for refrigeration. Specially during the summer, excessive waste heat can therefore be used to air-condition buildings. That effect increases the running time and the efficiency of the CHP-unit.


For whom is a CHP useful?

CHP-units are excellent to be used for the following:

Hotels, Restaurants, Indoor pools
Businesses, Communities, Schools, Public Buildings
Hospitals, Wellness centers
Waste water treatment plants
Bio-gas facilities etc.


Traditional facilities and CHP-units in comparison

bhkw1 With traditional production of cold air/heat and electricity, large amounts of unused waste heat and emmissions occur. In addition, consider the low efficiency factor of traditional units as well as the conduit losses, 30% to 40% of additional primary energy would be required.

bhkw2 With decentralized energy production in form of a CHP, the overall energy loss is reduced by using the waste heat of the CHP-unit.



Reduction of energy cost:

higher efficiency factor of the unit
no power losses

reduction of primary energy

less wear on the combustion engine

low maintenance cost

Usually, the high cost for peak time and further purchase of user right are eliminated.
