Combined Heat & Power (CHP) from OMNI Heat and Power.
OMNI Heat & Power are installers of Combined Heat & Power (CHP) engines.
What is a Combined Heat & Power (CHP) engine?
A combined heat and power (CHP) engine, produces both heat and electricity simultaneously and are designed to run continuously.
Where in Combined Heat & Power (CHP) Suitable?
Combined Heat and Power (CHP) is ideal for developments, buildings or district heating schemes where there is a large base load of heat requirement as the engines can be installed alongside heat only boilers to provide peak thermal demands of the building as a when required whilst producing in some cases more than enough electricity required for the building.
A common use for Combined Heat & Power (CHP) engines is hotel or leisure complexes which often have a consistent demand for heat all year round for swimming pools, showers, buildings etc and also have a large electricity consumption.
Why have a Combined Heat & Power (CHP) installation?
By installing a Combined Heat & Power (CHP) engine electricity can be produced onsite providing potentially large savings compared to buying electricity from the grid.
Any excess electricity can be exported to the national grid to provide additional income.
What fuel does a Combined Heat & Power (CHP) engine use?
Combined heat and power engines typically use natural gas, or bio-gas from anaerobic digestion.
However, new products are emerging onto the UK market which can run off either biomass wood pellets or wood chip.
Any Combined Heat and Power engine which utilises renewable fuel such as biomass or bio-gas can qualify for renewable incentives such as the Renewable Heat Incentive (RIH), Feed in Tariffs (FITs), or Renewable Obligation Certificates (ROCs).
