Small is beautiful
Groundbreaking micro-CHP (combined heat & power) technology is available for the first time in the UK following a new Anglo-Japanese agreement.
ENER-G Combined Power Limited has entered into a technology partnership with Japanese manufacturer Yanmar that will enable whole new sectors to harness low-carbon technology.
Commenting on the partnership, ENER-G sales manager Anthony Mayall said: “The Micro CHP range expands our capability from 4kWe to 10MWe, which is unique to the market place and means we can extend beyond our previous lower limit of 35kWe and help organisations with smaller buildings with their energy efficiency. This product range means ENER-G comfortably has the broadest product range on the market.”
The micro-CHP systems, available in a range of sizes from 4kWe to 25kWe, are more than twice as efficient as conventional power generating technology. A 25kWe unit would typically save up to 66 tonnes of carbon annually – equating to the carbon absorbing benefit of approximately 6,600 trees.
Another major benefit of micro CHP technology is that it can enable users to qualify for the government’s new feed-in tariff scheme which pays financial rewards to consumers who generate on-site electricity from sustainable sources.
