LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) is one of the possible fuels for CHP units. Its low emissions of nitrogen oxides and particulate matter support the reduction of the environmental impact of the power and heat generation. LPG allows relatively easy distribution and storage, making it ideal for smaller plants or remote areas with a limited access to other fuels. These are generally so-called island operations with their own storage tanks, i.e. locations where the necessary gas infrastructure is not available.
Combined production of power and heat, or cogeneration, is a method of generating the electric power that makes useful use of the heat released during the power generation process. This achieves a very high efficiency in the use of the energy in the fuel. At the same time, this process minimizes the losses that occur in the traditional power generation. Thanks to the efficient use of the ‘waste heat’, combined heat and power generation saves up to 70% of the energy contained in the fuel as compared to the separate heat and power generation.
Energy storage is the process of storing energy that has been produced at one moment and using it at another moment. Energy storage is important for increasing the efficiency and flexibility of the energy system because it reduces dependence on instantaneous energy production and consumption. Energy storage can take place in different ways, for example by using batteries, pumped storage plants, flywheels or hot storage. Energy storage also has a positive impact on the environment by encouraging the use of renewable energy sources and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Complex energy sector solution
It is a complete takeover and operation of the customer’s energy source. This is followed by the design of a new solution, the reconstruction and operation of the new equipment under the direction of TEDOM. In addition to saving the investment in the new equipment, the customer gets a modern solution that combines both environmental and economic benefits.
Energy communities are one type of community energy. They are entities that bring together and coordinate the flexibility of electric power producers and consumers. The main purpose of an energy community is not to make a profit, but to provide environmental, economic or social benefits to its members or to the territories where it operates.
Community energy is an innovative approach to the energy sector that emphasizes the active participation of local people and small communities in the energy sector. The concept promotes the development of renewable energy sources and energy efficiency. The main objective is to create sustainable energy systems at local level, which includes the development of micro-grids, shared production and consumption of electric power in households and small-sized businesses. Community energy thus creates economic and environmental benefits for local communities, increasing energy independence and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
