At LCS Energy Ltd, we believe combined heat and power energy generation, via bespoke industrial or commercial CHP systems carefully specified for your current and future needs, is the most dependable way to reduce your carbon footprint, cut long-term energy costs and maintain the most reliable energy supply possible for mission critical power supplies.
The high efficiency of a CHP plant compared with conventional bought in electricity and site-produced heat provides a number of benefits including:
- Cost savings of between 15% and 40% over electricity sourced from the grid and heat generated by on-site boilers.
- Energy savings of typically >20%.
- Reduction in emissions compared to conventional electrical generators and onsite boilers
- On site production of power
- Additional guarantee of continuity in energy supplies for operator & consumer
These in turn deliver a range of beneficial outcomes:
- A reduction in the cost of energy, improving the competitiveness of industry and business, helping alleviate fuel poverty and lowering cost in delivery of public services
- Enhanced security of supply, making energy go further, through more efficient use of fuel – regardless of whether the fuel is renewable or fossil
- Increased flexibility and reliability of energy supply, both nationally and locally – as CHP can complement and enhance other forms of energy generation
- Flexible and responsive heat supplies – the thermal energy (heat or cooling) produced by CHP can be easily stored and later delivered to meet demand
- Reduced overall demand from centralised, such as large scale coal or gas fired power stations – thus reducing stress on the electricity grid
More information on CHP
Combined Heat and Power (CHP), also known as cogeneration is a cost effective way to power your business. It is Ideal for businesses with regular high energy and hot water usage such as agriculture, leisure and processing industries. CHP does exactly what it says in the title: it creates both heat and electricity within one single, highly efficient process. It generates electricity whilst capturing the usable heat that is produced in this process. The CHP process can be applied to both renewable and fossil fuels – it is essentially a process that takes a traditional energy production system and increases its efficiency as it captures other forms of energy that are normally wasted in the generation of electricity. The specific technologies employed, and the efficiencies they achieve will vary, but in every situation CHP offers the capability to make more efficient and effective use of valuable primary energy resources. CHP typically has an efficiency of over 80%
