COGENERATION/COMBINED HEAT AND GAS

COGENERATION/COMBINED HEAT AND GAS

Many industrial facilities such as manufacturing plants, refineries, and regional district heating plants, industrial driers; or commercial facilities such as resorts, shopping malls, high-rise office buildings, universities, data centres, and hospitals, can reduce operating costs by implementing a Cat® CHP generator system (also known as cogeneration) using clean pipeline natural gas as a fuel source. Cat gas generator sets can simultaneously provide electricity for electrical loads and heat energy for a facility's thermal requirements. Whereas separate grid electricity and natural gas boilers often provide less than 50 % efficiency, Cat CHP generator projects offer additional benefits.

What are the benefits of Cogeneration?

  • Energy efficiency up to 90 %
  • Reduced energy costs versus separate heat and electrical generation systems
  • Reduced emissions versus separate heat and electrical generation systems
  • Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification via energy efficiency credits
