- Case Studies
District heating schemes through Combined Heat and Power (CHP) utilisation can play an important role in facilitating improved energy efficiency and reduced carbon emission measures within residential, community, commercial and public premises, or mixed-use developments.
District energy schemes or heat networks is a distributed system of large-scale underground pipes that transport heat from a central energy centre direct to local domestic and non-domestic users. In most district energy projects; a gas engine CHP is at the heart of the energy centre due to its high fuel efficiency of over 90% and the cogeneration of electricity and heat from a single fuel source.
Should there be a requirement for refrigeration and/or air conditioning then the gas engine CHP can be configured for Trigeneration whereby cooling can be provided via absorption chillers.
Distributed technologies such as CHP and trigeneration are highly efficient at converting gas to power and because of their locality, eliminate efficiency loses incurred through the transmission and distribution of electricity through the electricity grid and local distribution networks.
The market leading performance from the MWM gas engine range is ideally suited for the application of CHP. This combined with our fully inclusive maintenance package and proven track record in delivering district energy CHP provides the maximum energy savings and long-term benefits to your community CHP project.
