Also known as CHP (Combined Heat & Power), Cogeneration refers to the utilization of electricity and heat. This technology capitalizes on the fact that all electrical generating plants generate a certain amount of power. Typically, conventional power plants do not effectively make use of the excess heat attaining only 55% efficiency. However, CHP systems gain higher efficiencies (up to 89%) by being implemented on-site thus allowing the heat byproduct to be utilized. SBE considers all aspects of a facility or organization’s energy, heating, cooling and water requirements, identifying efficiencies and creating budget-neutral energy infrastructure improvements that use annual utility savings to provide the capital needed for critical upgrades.
