Combined Heat and Power

A combined heat and power (CHP) system produces both electricity and useful thermal energy—either for heating or cooling—concurrently from a single source of energy. The traditional method of separately producing usable heat and power has a typical combined efficiency of 45%, while CHP systems can reach 80% efficiency levels.

CHP can be an economically beneficial energy solution for commercial, industrial, and institutional facilities with both electrical and thermal loads. It is a long-term investment that can provide significant energy cost savings and price stability.
