SIGNIFICANT SAVINGS AND CONTINUOUS DISTRIBUTION

Cogeneration offers a range of potential advantages to a variety of commercial applications.
The commercial sector is a highly competitive market. Its demands for electricity stands out for its strict safety requirements, aimed at ensuring the customer’s safety and continuation of activities even in case of power outage.
Cogeneration systems are suitable to a wide range of applications in the commercial sector as they allow significant savings on fuel costs for heat and power production.

HEATING/COOLING SYSTEMS

CENTRALIZED HEATING SYSTEMS

By using local natural gas distribution networks, cogeneration systems ensure a consistent energy supply, also offering the possibility (when needed) to uncouple the supply from the local electricity distribution network.

CENTRALIZED COOLING SYSTEM

By using absorption chillers, centralized cooling and trigeneration systems allow surplus heat to be used for the production of cold water. CHP systems have very high conversion efficiency (>90%), and therefore allow operation costs to be reduced in the long term.

 

HEAT REQUIREMENTS

They require:

  • electrical energy;
  • heated water;
  • cold water (7°C/12°C).

HOSPITALS

By their very nature, hospitals are higly energy-intensive. Cogeneration systems allow a more efficient use of fuel gas by recovering not only electricity, but heat as well.

ENERGY USE

They require:

  • electricity to light and power equipment;
  • hot water for cleaning and general use;
  • steam to sterilize and clean (various applications);
  • cooling for refrigeration, freezing, and air conditioning.

DATA PROCESSING CENTERS

Data and information processing centers are often highly energy-intensive and require a continuos flow of both electrical and thermal energy.
Many centers often face the need to reduce their energy bills.

HEAT REQUIREMENTS

They require:

  • electricity to light and power equipment;
  • cooling for electronic equipment cabinets.
