Solutions such as trigeneration and cogeneration are allowing developers, communities and governments to achieve greater energy security, and to source their energy more sustainably.
Where heat can effectively be reused, cogeneration delivers highly efficient, low-carbon energy in the form of heat and electricity. Trigeneration, fuelled by natural or renewable gases, is a sustainable way to generate electricity, using heat — typically from gas-fired generation — to power absorption chillers. Like cogeneration, it can produce local power for lighting, printers, computers and more, to replace coal-fired electricity.
Altogether's centralised plant ownership assists in the reduction of construction costs and space requirements. Combined with the efficient use of energy, and low or zero-carbon decentralised energy, it's possible to achieve major benefits for communities and the environment.
