The cogeneration is the combined production of electrical and thermal energy; the latter is made available as hot water, hot air or steam depending on the technology adopted according to the customer requirements. Moreover, the same technology may produce cold energy for refrigeration uses (tri-generation).
The advantages: cogeneration allows valuable savings on energy bills that can reach 40% of the total cost: electricity, heating and refrigeration.
Trigeneration system is a plant designed to produce cold water (>7°C) besides electricity and thermal energy, through the employment of a Lithium Bromide absorption chiller which use part of thermal energy produced by the Cogeneration plant. This configuration reduces the consumption of conventional
