Businesses must be flexible with their energy usage, lower their energy consumption and secure their supply. Choose cogeneration with EDF Energy and make the most of your business heating and cooling systems.
Cogeneration is a reliable and proven way of generating what you need onsite, securing your supply and mitigating against rising energy costs. Combined heat and power (CHP) systems can also be powered by low carbon primary fuels such as biogas.
Generate your own heat and power from low carbon sources onsite.
Secure your supply and price, long-term.
Reduce waste and increase efficiency.
Selected schemes mean we take on the financial and operational risks while you reap the rewards.
How does a CHP system compare to conventional systems?
There are many types of CHP plants. A CHP unit generates heat and electricity simultaneously but many different sources can be used to power a CHP system.

How do I get set up with cogeneration?
Choose one of three financial models that suits your business:
EPCM (Engineer, Procure, Construct and Maintain): You finance the construction, we build it, you own it, we operate it.
BOOT (Build, Own, Operate, Transfer): We finance the construction, we build it, and we own and operate it until the end of the contract. Then you purchase the energy from us.
TOLLING: We finance the construction, we build it, and we own and operate it until the end of the contract. Then you purchase a service from us.
Is cogeneration a renewable energy?
Cogeneration can use renewable energy sources. It can be powered by low carbon primary fuels such as biogas, so businesses can report lower carbon emissions.
