Combined production of electric power and heat, also called cogeneration, consists of effective utilization of heat which is generated in the electrical energy production in a gas engine. Thanks to that, it is possible to attain very high energy efficiency of fuel and to diminish energy wastage, compared to a process of a separate electricity and heat production. The product is dedicated to companies which use heat and electrical energy to power their technological processes. Cogeneration and modernization of clients' own power sources are an appealing investment, which will always contribute to substantial savings – DBE attains pay-back periods of 3-4 years while implementing such projects.
DBE cogeneration is a complex offer to implement efficiently a combined production of heat and electrical energy in a company or a plant. Firstly, we estimate initially the potential to apply cogeneration and possible savings, based on information delivered by a client. Flowingly, we search the first-rate possibility to implement a cogeneration system, we measure and analyse consumption profiles. In the next stage, we design installations and adjust suitable units. We deliver units produced by reputable manufacturers, and we design connections, integrate a new system with the existing one. Finally, we launch an installation.
DBE cogeneration entails as well investment financing in the EPC or the ESCO model in which capital expenditures payment follows the cost savings. For example, for a unit with the power of 1 MWel average annual savings will amount to approximately PLN 1 million. With the savings division of 20% (a client) and 80%(DBE), an investment without expenditures will be paid back within 6 years.
