Combined Heat & Power (CHP)

Combined heat and power (CHP) implements the production of heat and power (in the form of electricity), in one highly efficient process.

Combined Heat & Power (Part 1)

Combined Heat and Power makes electricity and also captures heat that is produced in the process.

Combined Heat & Power (Part 2)

This is very different from traditional ways of generating electricity (where a lot of heat is simply wasted). In modern power stations, up to two thirds of energy consumed is lost in this way (often as a cloud of steam).

Highly Efficient - Using waste heat, CHP plants can reach efficiency ratings in excess of 80%. This compares with the efficiency of Gas Power Station.
