Combined Heat and Power

Make the most of fuel

Where power is consumed, heat is often required as well. The processing industries use thermal energy for heating and drying or to produce steam. And in many regions of the world, the warmth in our very own homes is generated in centralized facilities. Producing both power and useful heat in a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) plant is the most cost-efficient way to cover these requirements. Explore Combined Heat and Power by Siemens and learn how you can achieve your energy goals at much lower costs while keeping emissions to the environment to a minimum.

How CHP works

In Combined Heat and Power, the waste heat produced in a plant facility is utilized in other industrial processes, extracted to cover the heat demand of individual buildings, or exported to a district heating system. CHP plants are typically based on gas and/or steam turbines in simple or combined cycle configuration. In simple cycle, the waste heat generated by a gas turbine is captured in a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) or waste heat recovery boiler (WHRB) and used for heating or to produce process steam. In combined cycle CHP it is initially used to fuel a second turbine producing additional power.
