Combined Heat & Power
Combined heat and power units (CHPs) or Co-generators, use an engine to generate both electricity and heat simultaneously.
What is it?
- Co-generation uses a prime mover engine, typically fueled by natural gas, to generate both electricity and heat simultaneously.
- The heat created during standard operation isn’t wasted: it’s re-used on-site.
- This means a building owner can rely on a single fuel source to heat and power their building!
- Food or crop processing installations may also benefit from cooling or CO2 use, and this tri or quad generation can be highly cost effective.

If you need small-scale co-generation — requiring just 55kw to 2 megawatts of energy output — then CSG has your best choice. Our Tedom CHP units are unrivalled in efficiency, are flexible and cost-effective.
- Over 8,000 are deployed worldwide in varied buildings requiring reliable power and heat.
A Tedom CHP will swiftly return your investment, offering savings of 20-40% in energy costs compared to conventional power stations and boilers.
- They have a small footprint and are quiet with fully compliant low emissions.
- Your CHP will easily tie into existing infrastructure and work well for decentralized or off-grid operations too.
Using your natural gas supply is the most cost-effective way to deploy our units, as Tedom CHPs use natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas or biogas as well.
- They’re compact and easy to install and maintain.
- They can also be controlled remotely by SCADA, computer or phone.
- Built with European technology that’s proven, reliable and refined since 1991.
In addition to small-need operations, these units can be scaled for all manner of businesses, from farms and factories to hotels, hospitals, condos, municipal heating plants and more.
