Combined Heat and Power
Do you have both a large heat demand and an electricity demand? Perhaps a CHP (Combined Heat and Power) is something for you! A CHP is a gas engine that drives a generator which at the same time produces heat.
Using the CHP scan below you will know within three minutes how much you could save on your energy bill. Based on a few simple questions, the scan gives you quick insight into the financial feasibility of a CHP.
The scan was developed for the built environment and is only suitable for gas consumption higher than 100,000 Nm³ per year. If you are interested in applying a CHP in the industry, please contact us directly via WKK@cocos.nl, or call us at +31 (0)570-667000. We will then conduct a free exploratory scan.
Using the scan
If your organisation is a hospital or other healthcare institution and you do not know the exact amount of energy you use, please use the following values as basic assumptions.
Healthcare institutions can use the following average values for energy use, converted into values per place (based on data from AgentschapNL):
– Gas consumption: 2401 Nm3 per year per site
– Electricity peak hours: 4094 kWh per year per site
– Off-peak electricity: 2729 kWh per year per site
Hospitals can assume the following values per bed:
– Gas consumption: 2521 Nm3 per year per bed
– Electricity peak hours: 6815 kWh per year per bed
– Off-peak electricity: 4544 kWh per year per bed
