Combined Heat and Power
SHEco can offer packaged solutions containing CHP and CCHP units.
CHP, also know as co generation, is a highly efficient process that captures the heat created from the generation of electricity, thus producing both heat and electricity simultaneously. CHP's can benefit all types of businesses and provide a return on investment in 3-4 years, cut energy by up to 40% and reduce carbon emissions by up to 30% compared to separate generation techniques.
How can CHP units benefit you?
Utilise captured heat, for your business' heating requirements.
Reduce electricity usage costs and reduce reliance on grid energy by generating your own electricity for your business.
Highly efficient technology, by using waste heat, CHP units can reach efficiency ratings in excess of 80%.
Utilities stability, through predictable electricity and heating costs allowing accurate forecasting of future utility expenses.
How CHP works
CHP converts a fuel (typically gas) into both electricity and heat in a single process at the point of use. A single fuel is needed for the CHP unit to operate thus simplifying your utility requirements. The CHP engine is coupled to an alternator which generates power, this power is then converted into useable electricity to meet onsite demand.
Simultaneously, heat is recovered from the engine exhaust, jacket and water/oil cooling circuit. The heat is made available for distribution around site.
