block heat power plants
Block heat power plants work on the principle of simultaneous heat and power generation. A combustion engine powers a generator and the electricity produced is fed directly into the own or the public electrical grid. The heat produced by the motors and by the exhaust gases is transferred using heat exchange and utilized as heating. In comparison to the usual separate production of electricity and heat, BHPPs reduce primary energy consumption by up to 36% and CO? emissions by up to 58%. They optimize the use of resources.
