There are two types of “waste heat” that are produced by generating electricity. The first type is the heat that is retrieved from the engine jacket water that is cooling the engine. Secondly, the heat exchanger transfers heat to the exhaust gas. This “waste heat” that is collected can be utilized for heating or to produce steam.
CHP systems are generally installed onsite where heat and power are directly supplied to customers. This helps to eliminate the loss of heat and power that occurs in transferring electricity from large, centralized plants. From residential to government facilities, CHP systems are available in various sizes and applications.
