microCHP in Industry : How does microCHP work in a home or business

MicroCHP in industry

Large scale 'Heat Engine Systems' (power plants), are used to generate electrical power for modern life, by burning a variety of fuels and converting them into mains electricity. They are however, extremely inefficient - they are unable to convert all the energy from the fuel they burn into electricity and some of the electricity is lost upon transmission through the national grid to your home or business. It is the wasted heat from this process that can be utilised by a microCHP system and turned into heat and hot water for your property.
