Both process are better than using grid connected electricity as they have a higher efficiency (80-95%) than conventional power production in the grid (30-40%) or through a generator that only produces electricity.
Trigeneration – also known as combined cooling heat and power (CCHP), is an additional process to CHP where the waste heat is also used to produce cooling through an absorption chiller.
Cogeneration – also known as combined heat and power (CHP), is a process where the heat which is generated during the production of electricity by a generator is harnessed and used to heat water.
It may also be a process where waste heat used in chemical or industrial process is used to generate electricity.
These solutions are ideal for applications in the following setting:
- Hotels, boarding houses, hostels
- Retirement houses, social service buildings, hospitals, and clinics
- Covered swimming pools, aqua parks, spas, and fitness centers
- Schools, office buildings, supermarkets, and malls
- Agricultural establishments, breweries, zoos, industrial establishments, laundromats, urban heating plants, comfort family houses, and more
- Industrial processes where heat and electricity needs are high
