Cogeneration is a solution where a site harnesses both the electricity and heat produced by an engine or turbine (also referred to as CHP or combined heat and power). 

Tri-generation is essentially a cogeneration system but with the addition of an absorption chiller, utilising electricity, heating and cooling. Both systems are best suited to facilities with a continuous heat and electrical load in excess of 400Kw per hour.


Energy Action can assist across the complex evaluation and installation process for both systems, we offer a full project management service including site assessment, design, installation, funding options and liaising with suppliers.
