What is micro-CHP?
Micro-Combined Heat and Power is the simultaneous generation of principally electricity, and also heat, close to the point of use. By locating micro-CHP equipment in or close to a building, the electricity generated and the heat produced can be used in the building with no energy wastage.
Our grid electricity is generated by large, remote power stations which every year waste enough energy to heat most of our buildings. The huge waste of energy results in very inefficient and very expensive grid supplied electricity.
Micro-CHP is a key microgeneration technology which can deliver carbon savings of 20%-30%. it is a mature reliable technology which delivers very attractive finacial benefits and can play a big part in gaining compliance with planning and building regulations.
