Solar cogeneration serves three related energy needs: heat, cooling and electricity. Cogenra systems heat water that can be integrated with a building’s existing hot water system. Used in combination with an absorption chiller, Cogenra systems can provide solar-powered air conditioning. Because cooling needs are highest when the sun shines, cooling applications allow buildings to reduce their expensive peak electricity demand. Cogenra systems also provide clean, renewable electricity.
By using solar cogeneration, many different industries can reduce a significant portion of their fuel consumption and gain access to clean electricity to sustainably supply energy for daily operations.
