Combined Heat and Power systems for business
Advantages of Combined Heat and Power
There are several advantages of using Combined Heat and Power (CHP) to supply energy for your business. For example, CHP can help you to:
- reduce your energy bills by up to 30 per cent
- reduce your carbon emissions by up to 30 per cent
- increase the security of your energy supply - as your power will be generated independently of the grid
CHP is also not restricted to new builds, as it can be installed on existing sites - eg during boiler room refurbishments.
One of the major benefits of using CHP systems can be a significant reduction in your business' energy bill. The amount you can save will depend on whether the CHP is custom-built or a packaged unit.
Schemes that have been certified under the UK CHP Quality Assurance programme as being highly efficient are termed 'Good Quality CHP schemes'. In recognition of the reduced carbon emissions such schemes provide, Good Quality CHP schemes are eligible for a number of incentives from the government.
