THE RIGHT SOLUTION!
A user, who decides to make use of cogeneration, is expected to continue using the same amounts of energy, however, he will achieve economic savings, since higher efficiency results in lower costs of cogeneration compared to conventional technology. Savings depend on the ratio between the price of electric energy and the price of the fuel used in cogeneration. The larger the difference between these prices, the larger the savings and the shorter investment recovery time. In most cases of cogeneration installations, energy savings stand between 20 and 30%.
Most of production processes also require reliable power supply. Cogeneration guarantees reliability and delivers other savings which are more difficult to evaluate in economic terms. Savings can be demonstrated most easily on an example (valid for data from 2014!). If 30,000 m3 of gas is required to heat a building, the costs amount to approx. 16,500 EUR. Cogeneration device would in the same case generate 75,000 kWh of electric energy for which the state would pay approx. 17,500 EUR. This actually means that the building would be heated for free.
For installation of a modern high efficiency micro-cogeneration device with the rated power of up to 50 kW, investors are eligible to receive favourable loans by the Eco fund.
