Combined heat and power (CHP)

A combined heat and power (CHP) system is a system in which a combustion engine is connected to a generator. This coupling generates both heat and electricity from one type of fuel, such as natural gas, biogas or LNG. It is a very efficient way of generating energy with many advantages.

CHP: Efficient and environmentally friendly

Organisations that continuously have a high demand for heat and energy benefit from the advantages of combined heat and power (CHP). But a CHP system is also attractive for organisations that use CO2 in their processes, such as horticultural companies. With a CHP system, you create a small power plant that generates energy in a very efficient and environmentally friendly way.

Yield over 96%

The biggest advantage of CHP systems is their high efficiency. This is higher than if heat and electricity were generated separately from each other. The total efficiency of Caterpillar’s CHP systems is over 96%. The loss is therefore minimal. An additional advantage is that if you do not use the generated electricity yourself, you can store it or sell it back to an energy supplier that will benefit from it at that time. When it is foggy in the Netherlands, shortages can arise at energy suppliers who depend on solar panels or wind turbines. This results in an imbalance in the power grid. Flexible energy generation from CHP systems remedies this imbalance by compensating for the shortage of solar and wind energy. With a CHP system, you therefore benefit from your own production, but no energy is lost at times when you do not need it.

Diversity in CHP systems

Engine technology, mechanical engineering, drive technology… All kinds of technologies come together in CHP systems. In addition, CHP systems are available in all shapes and sizes. Which CHP system is suitable for you depends on the area of application and the desired output. Together with a Pon Cat account manager, we will find a suitable CHP system for your company.
