Combined heat/power stations
Enerbloc 2000: Function and use
Heat - Generate electricity - Save money with combined heat and power stations

Conventional power stations only produce electricity. The degree of efficiency of the generators is only about 35% of the input energy. The rest is waste heat that is released, unused, into the environment. By comparison, thermal power stations use this heat to help generate electricity. This raises the overall degree of efficiency to up to 90% with combined heat and power stations (CHPs). They can be used everywhere electricity and heat are generally needed at the same time. CHPs work on the principle of power-heat cogeneration: they are small heat generators, which produce electricity efficiently at the same time. They're also small power stations that use almost all of the waste heat for heating purposes.

The CHP consists of a combustion engine that powers an electrical generator. The electricity produced is fed into your own system or into the public power network. The heat that's generated by combustion runs through a coolant system directly into the building's heating system or hot water heater. Because our CHP units optimize energy use like this, they're able to cover the greater part of your own energy and heating needs without any problem. Short-term spikes in energy use are covered by the pubic network. Our CHP units are delivered ready-to-use in a sound-absorbent casing and can be set up quickly. They run very quietly and their elastic casing ensures that vibrations aren't transferred into the building - a separate foundation is superfluous. ENERBLOCs are always connected to the public network and operate in parallel to it.

The system operates with a constant number of revolutions, that is, also with constant thermal and electric performance. Regular flow temperature and a range of settings from 65°C to 80°C. Hot water return at a maximum of 60°C. The switchboard in particular features absolutely reliable controls, which make breakdown-free operation possible.
