COGEN World Coalition expands membership to include national industry associations in Germany, India and Japan
The COGEN World Coalition, which was established in April 2021 to promote the benefits of cogeneration globally, is proud to announce the addition of 3 new members. These are: ACEJ (the Advanced Cogeneration and Energy Utilization Center of Japan), B.KWK (the German Association for Combined Heat and Power) and the Cogeneration Association of India (Cogen India).
Following the addition of these new members, the COGEN World Coalition (CWC) now counts 23 members in total: 10 manufacturing companies and 13 national or regional associations.
The Advanced Cogeneration and Energy Utilization Center of Japan (ACEJ) was established in 2011 and currently has some 127 members. Most of the members are energy and technology companies with an interest in cogeneration. ACEJ’s overarching objective is to help preserve the global environment, contribute to the international community, and enhance the lives of people in Japan by promoting the use of cogeneration systems and other advanced energy technologies.
The German Association for Combined Heat and Power (B.KWK) was founded in 2001 and currently has some 371 members. These members include manufacturers, operators and planners of cogeneration systems, as well as public utilities, energy suppliers, scientific institutes and individuals. They all share the goal of advancing cogeneration in Germany and using the associated opportunities to benefit the economy and also the environment.
The Cogeneration Association of India (Cogen India) was also created in 2001 and currently has some 50 members including cogeneration operators, suppliers of equipment and services, energy companies and utilities, state and central government ministries, departments and other public bodies, as well as academic and research institutions. Cogen India cooperates with a wide variety of national and international organisations to promote cogeneration and related technologies.
Welcoming the three new members, the CWC’s Executive Director, Hans Korteweg, said: « We are very pleased that these important national associations have decided to join the CWC and thereby enable our coalition to become even more representative of the global cogeneration community. The members of the CWC are committed to sharing knowledge and working together to raise awareness about the manifold benefits of cogeneration in terms of boosting energy efficiency, enhancing system resilience, reducing emissions and decarbonising our economies. »
