Heat and Power Systems:
- Combined Heat and Power is
a fuel-efficient energy technology that utilises the by-product
heat that is normally wasted to the environment. CHP can increase
the overall efficiency of fuel use to more than 75%, compared
with around 50% from conventional electricity generation. Furthermore,
because it often supplies electricity locally, CHP can also avoid
transmission and distribution losses.
- Carbon Trust -small scale CHP pilot field trials.
- CHPA -the Combined Heat and Power Association
promotes the use of combined heat and power and community heating.
Club -an initiative
under the Carbon Trust's Networks programme, aimed at assisting
users in getting the maximum benefits from CHP through information,
exchange and advice.
-the Government's targets for Combined Heat and Power
- ECPower -based in Bristol, they market mini-energy
production units with an extremely high level of efficiency,
turning as much as 93% of the fuel energy directly into heat
- Whispergen -a personal generation system from
Powergen that can efficiently heat a family home whilst generating
electricity to supplement grid supply using a micro combined
heat and power (microCHP) system based on a Stirling external
