If you need electricity and thermal energy simultaneously, a cogeneration system may be your solution, and can offer a favorable return on investment.
Cogeneration allows you to benefit from two or three forms of energy for the price of one, with minimal environmental impact. These systems can turn clean-burning natural gas into cost-effective, reliable electricity, use steam for production processes, and implement heat for water and building space, or seasonal/process cooling.
With turbine-based generation in place, you can:
This is a cogeneration combined cycle plant that uses natural gas fuel and has the capacity to produce 174 MW of electricity and 81 tons of steam per hour.
