Cogeneration and Trigeneration
What is cogeneration and trigeneration?
Cogeneration (also known as ‘combined heat and power’ or CHP) and trigeneration (also known as ‘combined cooling, heat and power’ or CCHP), increase the overall efficiency of power generation by harnessing the excess heat, steam or other gases that would otherwise be lost.
Using this excess thermal energy to generate electricity and useful heat means that less fuel needs to be consumed to produce the same amount of useful energy.
Cogeneration and trigeneration systems can make a significant contribution to reducing energy costs and improving efficiency, particularly at sites that have high demand for heating (or cooling), such as schools, hospitals. hotels and leisure/aquatic centres.
