What a CHP System Produces

CHP is unique among electricity-producing technologies and methods because it generates more than one output. For most industrial applications, the thermal energy produced by the systems is the most valued output; electricity is considered a secondary, yet beneficial, by-product. CHP systems can provide the following products:

  • Electricity
  • Direct mechanical drive
  • Steam or hot water
  • Process heating
  • Cooling and refrigeration
  • Dehumidification
