You may not have heard about CHP yet but you are guaranteed to be talking about it soon…

What is CHP and Why use it?

Combined Heat and Power (CHP) is on-site electricity generation that captures the heat that would otherwise be wasted, to provide useful thermal energy. The steam or hot water that is recovered in this process can be used for heating, cooling, domestic hot water and other industrial processes.

Typically, up to 65% of the energy used to generate grid electricity is wasted in the form of heat discharged to the atmosphere. Additional energy is wasted during the distribution & transportation of electricity to end users. CHP recovers and utilises this energy, rather than releasing it wastefully into the atmosphere making it both extremely efficient and environmentally friendly.

CHP replaces inefficient Grid energy with Local heat and power which is typically 80% more efficient than conventional boilers. Essential you are placing a highly efficient and reliable small power plant on site; you are becoming your own energy supplier.

CHP can achieve efficiencies of over 80 percent, compared to 50 percent for conventional technologies (grid-supplied electricity and an on-site boiler). Using Natural gas electricity is produced at 60% of your current costs and heat/cooling from the system is also produced with a 25% reduction on current costs.

“Not only is CHP the most efficient way to produce power it is also the most cost effective”

  • All connections to the grid are maintained to produce 20% of the remaining electricity. This ensures you are never disconnected.
  • Our CHP units are installed as a fully monitored service eliminating any performance risks.
  • Increased life expectancy of your existing heating System: CHP will be doing 40-50% of the work therefore reducing existing maintenance and running costs


CHP radically reduces your Carbon footprint: CO2 emissions are reduced by up to 60 percent by comparison with separate generation of power and heat.

“To be Paris compliant Ireland needs to deliver real-zero CO2 by 2035-40” Climate Expert Prof Kevin Anderson. This will kickstart the Carbon Credit and Carbon neutral process for your business, resulting in tax savings. Carbon taxes are going to be a feature in energy bills as Ireland has to reduce it’s carbon emissions by 7% per annum to meet the agreed Paris Accord targets.
