A conventional electricity supply system is around 30% efficient with 70% waste heat loss. A Energy System | LPG Equipment | Co-Generation by producing both heat and power simultaneously can:
increase efficiency up to 80%
halve the cost of purchased electricity
provide heat requirements at no additional cost
displace expensive diesel fuel
minimise environmental hazards from fuel spillage
If a Energy System | LPG Equipment | Co-Generation is well matched to plant requirements for power and heat then an overall economic benefit will be obtained yielding a simple payback over 1 to 4 years.
Security Of Supply
Energy System | LPG Equipment | Co-Generation will also provide insurance against loss of electricity supply due to disruption by industrial action or accident.
Futhermore a Energy System | LPG Equipment | Co-Generation can be arranged to operate in an emergency power generating mode in case of power failure.
There for there is no need for investment in a non-returning diesel generating set.
Finance and Operation of Energy System | LPG Equipment | Co-Generation:
For certain operations, Third Party Investors can arrange finance and operate Energy System | LPG Equipment | Co-Generation; providing energy cost saving for no capital outlay and no additional complexity to your business operations.
Greenhouse gas emissions are reduced by the adoption of Energy System | LPG Equipment | Co-Generation. Energy System | LPG Equipment | Co-Generation can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by over 60% compared with brown coal fired power generation.
Applications For Energy System | LPG Equipment | Co-Generation
Industries such as Pulp and Paper. Petrochemicals. Food. Brewing. Textiles. Building Products. Meat (abattoirs) and some manufacturing processes require large quantities of heat and therefore provide ideal applications for Energy System | LPG Equipment | Co-Generation.
Typically the POWER will be used for producing electricity but can be used for compressors, pump or fan drives etc. The by-product HEAT can be used for steam generation, heating water, combustion air, product drying and absorption chilling.
Energy System | LPG Equipment | Co-Generation will provide cost effective efficiency improvements by reducing energy costs, optimised when the process heat requirements are matched by the output of co-generation equipment operating constantly (typically during peak hours 7am - 11pm, Monday to Friday).
The heating/cooling and power requirements of Hospitals, Hotels, Institutions, Commercial Buildings, Swimming Complexes, Computer Centres, etc. can be provided economically by a Energy System | LPG Equipment | Co-Generation.
Gas turbines or reciprocating engines for the electricity production, refrigeration or other drives can supply the thermal energy for steam, hot water, hot air or chilling via absorption chillers from the byproduct heat of the power source.
Energy System | LPG Equipment | Co-Generation is most economical when the equipment runs constantly, particularly during peak hours (typically 7am - 11pm, Monday to Friday) and the byproduct heat can be used completely.
The Energy System | LPG Equipment | Co-Generation Concept
When power is produced heat is also produced. In large power stations this heat is wasted, and efficiency is typically only 50% overall.
