Combined Heat and Power

ESP Energy is partnered with Arbor HP to provide the ArborElectroGen 45 Unit. This Biogas CHP unit provides renewable heat and electricity from wood.

Combined heat and power is simply the simultaneous generation of usable heat and electricity. The heat can be used for domestic or industrial space heating or for process heat.

45kW of energy is used to create 100kW of heat.

The ArborElectroGen system converts wood into gas that fuels a Combined Heat and Power system (CHP), this produces mixture of heat and electricity. This unit offers one of the most cost-effective and low carbon heat generation systems for a variety of applications and is ideal for those who already have an on site supply of useable wood.

The ArborElectroGen® system produces little or no visible smoke plume from its flue, virtually zero NOx, and CO2 emission levels that are 93% lower than that of an equivalent natural gas-fired CHP system. This is due to the process and temperature at which the gas is produced in the vessel – coupled with the fact that the gas is made up of approximately 50% combustible components – a fuel that produces water vapour and small quantities of carbon dioxide when combusted in the CHP system.
