Increased Efficiency

    Traditional systems often utilize an off-site power plant to generate electricity and an on-site boiler to generate heat. These traditional systems typically operate at around 33% total efficiency. CHP systems can reach nearly 90% by capturing the waste heat created by the generation of electricity and using it for on-site needs, such as heating water, creating steam, or powering chillers.

    Benefits of CHP

    CHP systems are powered by a variety of renewable and fossil fuels, and can be quickly and cost effectively deployed with few geographic limitations. These systems can displace traditional electricity sources with significant increases in energy efficiency, resiliency, and independence.

    Dublin Recreation Center

    IGS Generation and the City of Dublin developed a CHP system at the city’s recreation center. The center sought better efficiency to power their facility using an onsite generation solution. By generating power near the point of consumption, capturing waste heat, and taking advantage of renewable resources, CHP uses energy in a smarter, more sustainable way. Using one fuel source, electricity and thermal energy are generated at the same time.
