Combining power generation with heating and cooling is often called ‘Trigeneration’ and is one of the most cost efficient ways to create and use power. 

What is Combined Cooling, Heat and Power?

Power can be generated through a microturbine which can be powered by a number of different fuels like natural gas, biogas, LPG or even hydrogen. The process of generating power also creates waste heat that is captured to provide heating/hot water, chilled water or a combination of all three. Co and trigeneration systems deliver reliable low cost and low emission electricity heating and cooling for a range of applications from commercial buildings, industrial, agribusiness, resorts and hotels, hospitals, aged care and a range of other applications.
