The production of heat and power has a huge impact on our environment and our future.
A Combined Heat & Power Plant (or CHP plant) is the type of power plant that generates electricity and captures the (otherwise wasted) thermal energy to be used for heating. The sustainable production of heat and power is achieved when we select the right energy sources, as well as operate and maintain the plants correctly.
When plant operation is optimized with smart technology used by industry experts, efficiency and safety increases.
Operation becomes even more efficient when additional data from processes is collected with IoT sensors and analysed with machine learning applications.
Data helps operation and maintenance crews make the right decisions. The supply of power and heat must be uninterrupted and safe – every hour of every day.
A smart CHP plant is closely connected to the surrounding smart city to provide the apporpriate output of energy and heating for businesses and homes. Energy industry experts operate and maintain the plant efficiently, making sure that there is minimal downtime in the critical supply of heat and electricity.
By using the latest IoT and AI tools and by selecting the right energy sources, we can:
