Cleaner, more affordable power generation

Also referred to as cogeneration or combined heat and power, onsite power is a cost-effective way to produce electricity and heat at your facility. That means you save on energy costs including lowering your hefty global adjustment fees.

 

Delivering the outcomes you need

It’s simple: cogeneration helps you do more with less. By utilizing the exhaust energy from gas turbines, useful steam can be generated in a heat exchanger which can then be used in any number of applications, all with no additional fuel consumption. GE’s cogeneration systems use fuel more efficiently to generate more power and produce fewer emissions per MW. Make your business more efficient and resilient than ever, and save money by transforming waste streams from an environmental disadvantage to an energy benefit.

How does CHP work?

No matter what equipment you are using, heat is a byproduct of generating electricity. In most cases, the heat produced is lost to the atmosphere. In a CHP application, that exhaust heat is captured and recycled to provide hot water or steam. This enables heating or cooling for the facility and significantly increases your generation equipment’s efficiency.

When you use a natural gas engine to produce onsite electricity and heat you are eligible for energy efficiency levels as high as 90%, much higher than the average efficiency level of the US electrical grid (which is roughly 40%)
