Combined Heat and Power (CHP)

What is CHP?
CHP is the system in which electricity and thermal energy are generated simultaneously. CHP enables electricity and thermal energy to be generated where it is consumed. CHP systems restore the thermal energy that is lost while generating electricity to the system and provide energy conversion. In addition, the losses that occur during energy transmission are minimised. Thus, electricity can be generated with a single system, buildings can be heated, and hot water needs can be met. Thermal energy generated by cogeneration can be used in industrial facilities and other places where heat is used in the tertiary sector (steam, hot oil, etc.). Another name for cogeneration is "combined heat and power" technology. CHP means that the electricity and heating energy needed is generated from a single source.

What Are the Benefits of CHP?
Part of the electricity and heat energy is lost when it is transmitted to the places where it will be consumed. CHP systems, on the other hand, generate electricity and heat where it is consumed, and ensure that transmission and distribution losses are minimised. It not only prevents energy loss in distribution and transmission systems, but also eliminates the need for additional investment required in transmission and distribution systems. Moreover, CHP systems enable high efficiency production as they enable the conversion of waste heat into usable energy.

At the same time, CHP provides efficient and economical use of energy by meeting the electricity and heat needs from a single source (natural gas). It helps to prevent environmental pollution by reducing the carbon footprint of the facilities, and also reduces the external dependence of the facilities in energy supply.

Fossil fuels used for energy production in our world are getting more and more expensive every day. CHP systems provide savings and contribute to the environment by ensuring the use of energy at maximum efficiency.

What is Combined Cooling, Heat and Power (CCHP)?
CCHPis to add the benefit of "cooling" in addition to the cogeneration system that provides heat and electricity generation. CCHP systems generate electricity and heat energy in facilities as well as cold water for cooling systems. In other words, CCHP is the simultaneous production of electricity, heating and cooling energies by using a single energy source.

The CHP unit consists of a natural gas fired gas engine equipped with an alternator. While this engine generates electricity, it also releases heat. With the recovery of this heat, the CHP system is completed. Trigeneration system, on the other hand, is formed by adding thermal energy absorbing heat recovery system to the combined heat and power system (CHP). Thermal energy is recovered in the heating system partially, and the remnant is transferred to the cooling system by the absorption chiller. The absorption chillers use waste heat as an energy source instead of electricity.

What is the Difference Between CCHP and CHP?
The difference between CCHP and CHP is the cooling system included in the system. It is the use of converting the genereate heat for the cooling needs of the building or the production. CCHP systems provide savings and high energy efficiency for businesses that need seasonal or continuous cooling.

How Much Do CHP and CCHP Systems Save?
Gas turbines and engines that only generate electricity convert only 40% to 45% of the fuel they use into electricity and cause a great loss of energy as waste heat. CHP systems save 30-40% in fuel consumption by using this waste heat. In other words, a gas turbine or gas engine that generate only electricity converts only 40 - 45 percent of the energy input to electricity, while the efficiency reaches 80 - 90% in cogeneration systems. Efficiency reaches up to 95% in CCHP systems.

What Are the Fuels Used in CHP and CCHP Systems?
  • Fossil Fuels: Natural gas, LPG, LNG
  • Renewable Fuels: Biogas, Bio-diesel, Bio-mass
  • Waste heat
  • Solid wastes
  • Geothermal
According to 2012 European Central Bank data, natural gas is the most used fuel in cogeneration and trigeneration systems with a share of 49.5%.

Which Equipment Is Used in CHP Plants?
  • Gas Turbine / Steam Turbine / Internal Combustion Engine
  • Generator / Alternator
  • Waste Heat Recovery Unit

Where & In Which Sectors Are CHP Systems Used?
CHP and CCHP systems can be applied to industrial facilities that constantly need heating and cooling, such as steam, hot water, hot gases / air, etc. The sectors, where CHP technology is the most efficient, are the manufacturing industry where electricity and heat consumption are high, stable and continuous throughout the day. CHP and trigeneration systems are also a valuable investment, for hospitals serving 7/24. It is of great importance that hospitals and hotels continue their heating, cooling and electrical energy consumption without interruption. Therefore, CHP and CCHP systems provide great advantages, savings, and efficiency in the energy cost of hospitals.

CHP-CCHP Installation in 7 Steps
1. Consumption Analysis
The customer’s energy bills are obtained and analysed. In these bills, the past consumption data of the customer are analysed in detail. Legislative regulations, by-laws and technological compliance, and other criteria are evaluated in this analysis. Enerjisa takes the responsibility of correct system sizing provided that the past consumption data is accurate. Theoretical design and conformity assessment for business model are carried out at this stage.

2. Site Survey
Enerjisa teams visit the facility and conduct detailed site survey. Electrical and mechanical infrastructure, field and space conformity, which technology and equipment to choose for CHP systems, how to integrate the existing system with the CHP system is all analysed.

3. Investment Analysis
The investment period is specified by calculating the return of investment and costs. Cost estimates, reimbursement plan, and repayment mechanism are set up at this stage.

4. Contract Signing Process
A long-term contract is signed between Enerjisa and the customer. The commitments of the customer and Enerjisa are specified in detail.

5. Procurement and Engineering Design

Why Should You Install a CHP-CCHP System?
CHP or CCHP unit have many important benefits. The primary contribution of these systems is less energy (fuel) consumption for heating, cooling and electricity generation. CHP or CCHP unit minimise energy loss. Therefore, production costs are reduced compared to traditional methods where heating, cooling and electricity are generated separately and cause heat and energy loss. By ensuring that energy is consumed at the place where it is generated, losses while transmitting energy are prevented. A facility / enterprise that owns a CHP or CCHP unit can control and monitor the entire energy generation process.

CHP-CCHP Success Stories
1. Adana HiltonSA
The CHP project carried out by Hilton Adana and Enerjisa was commissioned in 2018. As a result of the project that started to save on the first day, Hilton Adana now generates electricity and heat energy itself and consumes in the most efficient way. Enerjisa continues to report savings and energy consumption every month. For instance, the CHP system installed for Hilton Adana in August 2020 saved 50% on the energy bill.

2. Sabancı University
Sabancı University carried out the CHP conversion in cooperation with Enerjisa. Sabancı University both generates electricity and generates heat energy with its CHP system. As a result of the project, energy losses in the energy costs of the campus were minimised. The hot air generated from the CHP plant is used for water heating, thus increasing the energy efficiency of the campus and saving money.

‘‘At Sabancı University, we continue our leadership in science and technology by using green energy. Enerjisa solutions strengthen, accelerate and facilitate the leadership of our university in energy usage.”
