Use Case: District heating and cooling

Although electricity may well be the most sought after commodity in energy generation, it is not the most efficient way of transforming waste fuel into energy. A Combined Heat and Power (CHP) plant has an efficiency ratio of up to 80%, while in electricity generation the ratio drops down to 20%.

District heating and cooling is the most efficient way of utilizing the energy generated in a power plant. Centralized power generation has a much higher efficiency ratio that smaller localized equipment. It also utilized the “residual” thermal energy component, whereas typical local cooling and heating solutions, the so-called heat pumps, use electricity, which is often a scarce resource.
