Farm and Agriculture

A Combined Heat and Power system from ENER-G, is well suited to the farming and biogas utilisation industries and can provide reliable and assured power, whilst cutting carbon, reducing energy usage and saving money.

CHP is ideal for biogas applications looking to improve operating efficiencies and save money as using gas generated on site provides additional savings, by being able to use the waste product without paying to dispose it.

Combined Heat and Power (CHP) - the simultaneous generation of electricity and useful heat - is almost twice as efficient as conventional power generation as the majority of heat is recovered and used on site, rather than wasted into the atmosphere. Typical payback period on CHP technology varies between two to four years.

CHP is a cost-effective means of generating renewable energy. Powered by natural gas or biogas, an ENER-G CHP system can not only generate power for farms and manufacturers alike, but the waste heat from the engine can be harnessed and used to meet thermal requirements. The fuel efficiency rate will increase by utilising energy is a more efficient way.

In your pursuit of efficiency it is important to consider your long term energy plan whilst considering and sizing a CHP unit. CHP units are sized based on the current electrical and thermal base-load demands meaning future energy based upgrades will naturally increase the buildings electrical and thermal base-loads. These types of energy based improvements must be considered when undertaking a CHP feasibility study, to ensure that the CHP is future proofed.

Whatever the energy needs of your facilities, we can provide you with a tailored energy solution.
