The global energy system is one of the largest emitters with more than 33 Giga Ton of CO2 emissions every year !
Our planet is increasingly suffering from the consequences of global warming.
In order to reverse this trend and limit global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius as stipulated in the Paris Agreement, emissions need to be cut down drastically. As the global energy system is one of the largest emitters with more than 33 Giga Ton of CO2 emissions every year, we need to make our energy system more renewable, efficient and sustainable.
With cogeneration, also known as Combined Heat and Power (CHP), we have an energy efficient solution to generate heat and electricity which is ready for renewable fuels. A cogeneration unit simultaneously produces electricity and heat right at the point where it is needed. It is much more efficient than the separate generation of electricity and heat and it can be installed in any type of building, from a single house, over a public building, to a large factory. With cogeneration, a building can become largely self-sufficient and energy independent.
