CHP (Combined Heat and Power) Systems

Combined heat and power (CHP), also known as cogeneration, is the simultaneous production of electricity and heat from
a single fuel source, such as: natural gas, biomass, biogas, coal, waste heat, or oil. CHP is globally recognised as a cleaner
alternative to many solutions on the market today and has many financial, operational, environmental and legislative benefits
from just a single unit of fuel.

At The Energy Desk we can tender your energy requirements to different suppliers across the UK to find the best CHP system
and deal to suit your consumption needs. We can project manage the entire process from concept to completion to ensure
everything runs smoothly and on time, reducing the risk of unexpected costs or delays. CHP can achieve up to 40% savings and
is therefore an affordable tool for improving your environmental performance and long-term energy security.

Why use a CHP system?


There are many financial benefits that acompany use of CHP with reduced primary energy costs, stabilisied electricity costs and sufficient savings to fund energy efficient measures.

  • Minimum energy savings of 10% savings of between 15% and 40% over electricity
  • High overall efficiency of up to 80% or more at the point of use
  • Government grants and initiatives available
  • Funding available


With additional security of supply and choice of multiple tools, choosing Combined Heat and Power for your business can help you in the long run. The Energy Desk can help you provide increased diversity on heating and hot water, as well as cooling provisions using absorption chillers.

Questions about CHP? Just ask TED!

Why should businesses develop their own bespoke CHP systems instead of buying packaging systems to meet their environmental target?
A CHP plant produces power and heat at the same time, generating electricity and useful thermal energy in one integrated system. Using a bespoke CHP system means the waste heat that is produced when generating power, is used on site and without loss for heating rooms and water. Therefore, the primary energy is used multiple times making it efficient for companies’ environmental targets. A CHP plant can therefore save 50% primary energy or more, in comparison with a conventional heating solution without in-house power generation. This also reduces CO2 emissions.
Does CHP have clear environmental credentials?
Yes! An energy solution that is powered by natural gas or other fossil fuels has the potential to reduce carbon emissions up to 20% and is a cleaner alternative to biofuels and biogas.
Can businesses currently gain an acceptable payback period on CHP technology?
The payback period can vary depending on the size and scale of the project and how much the business is paying for gas and electricity. Our specialists work with you in order to find the right solution with the best possible payback period, based on the figures for the case in question. TED Gen offers advice to investors and planners, sharing their expertise and experience on CHP technology. The focus is always on creating economic and ecological added value for the customer. As well as the actual investment costs, the assessment also includes the operating costs in order to make the total cost of ownership transparent.
