Combined Heat and Power systems for business

Introduction

Combined Heat and Power (CHP) is a highly fuel-efficient means of generating electricity and useful heat in the same process. It is one of the most common forms of energy recovery.

High fuel efficiency means lower fuel bills and carbon savings compared to the separate generation of heat and power, eg within a boiler and central power station.

This guide outlines the main benefits of CHP, and describes the opportunities available to businesses that choose to adopt a CHP scheme.
