Combined Heat and Power is a technology that simultaneously generates electricity and heat from a fuel input.
There are many various fuels that can run the CHP, like natural gas, propane/butane, biogas, Sewage gas, landfill gas, hydrogen.
The exhaust gases are not discharged directly into the environment; they flow through a flue gas/heat exchanger where heat is extracted from them. The heat exchanger is connected to the external (secondary) circuit of the transmission line.
- The control unit takes full control over operation of the entire CHP unit system. The control system is of key importance for proper operation as well as for diagnostics and elimination of potential defects.
- A CHP system effectively transforms 90 % of the energy input, i.e. approximately 40 % as electricity and 50 % as thermal energy. Energy losses of a CHP unit amount to approximately 10 %.

Benefits of instaling a CHP unit
for investor and for environment
Where a CHP unit can be applied
The CHP unit's placement should ensure efficient heat usage and not exceed the local grid's capacity. CHP can be used in sites with heat demand, such as hotels, pools, care homes, multiapartment buildings, hospitals, industrial processes, greenhouses, etc., to optimize energy use and reduce costs.
CHP units find wide usage in swimming pools due to their ability to efficiently generate both heat and electricity. In essence, CHP technology’s ability to provide efficient, cost-effective, and reliable heat and power makes it a highly beneficial solution for swimming pools, where the simultaneous demand for both is constant and substantial.
