Clarke Energy and our sister company Co-Energy America are pleased to announce our support of World Cogeneration Day, September 4th 2020 and highlighting key international cogeneration projects. Cogeneration or combined heat and power technology (CHP) plays an important role in providing efficient localised power and supporting carbon emissions reduction. Gas engine CHP plants can use renewable gas such as biogas, biomethane or hydrogen or low carbon gases such as natural gas at high efficiency and close to the site of use. Generating electricity and heat locally means lower losses and better use of the fuel, translating to lower carbon emissions.
Embedded power plants also enable cost-effective energy resilience in countries that are prone to natural disasters or have unreliable power distribution networks.
Alex Marshall, Group Marketing and Compliance Director, Clarke Energy commented:
“We are pleased to be supporting the World Cogeneration Day and celebrating international achievements in high efficiency localized generation. Keep an eye out for announcements related to important global projects in the coming months”
