Combined heat and power (CHP) is the generation of
heat and electricity from the same appliance
How CHP works
Combined heat and power (CHP) systems, also known as cogeneration, generate electricity and useful thermal energy in a single, integrated system. CHP is not a technology, but an approach to applying technologies. The heat that is normally wasted in conventional power generation is recovered as useful energy, which avoids the losses that would otherwise be incurred from a separate generation of heat and power.Technology
Thermionic-enabled appliances produce power for the appliance and home, reducing electricity bills.
CHP systems produce power much more efficiently than the grid, lowering greenhouse gas emissions for the home.
CHP heating appliances self-power, using electricity they generate. Homeowners never again worry about winter storms knocking out their home heat.
