Revenue and Energy Savings using Power and Heat Cogeneration
(CoGen) is an on-site power generator, like having a personal utility company at your facility.
Energy is produced typically using natural gas for :
- Commercial buildings
- Manufacturing, hospitals
- College and university campuses
- Government facilities
- Military facilities
- Industrial facilities
Heat is normally lost during power generation. By capturing that heat, a cogeneration facility can supply hot water or heat as well as reliable, off-grid power.
Major utility companies have used cogeneration to monetize the process of energy production for decades by selling steam and hot water to nearby customers.
At the government or enterprise level, cogeneration offers a way to reduce energy costs on multiple fronts. NECS provides comprehensive energy services specialists who analyze electrical, heating and cooling needs, then develop energy conversion systems from as small as 60(kw) kilowatts to 10(MW’s) megawatts of reliable power for mission-critical facilities, producing for revenue and valuable energy savings.
In many cases, a larger power generation system will add no development cost and pay for itself with excess electricity that is sold back into the power grid.
Excess power can be used to further lower utility costs or as a reliable stream of revenue when sold through a power purchase agreement. NECS is a recognized leader in adapting renewable energy sources for cogeneration.
These off-grid solutions meet on-site power needs with clean, energy-efficient plants that can be built or upgraded to become independent power generation facilities with revenue potential for their owners.
