Combined Heat and Power Systems Can Help Beat the Heat

Posted by Dalkia Aegis on Aug 15

Summertime, time to sit back and unwind. It is also the season that aggravates many electrical issues taking away from fun in the sun. Increased demand, storm-related outages, power surges, blackouts and brownouts can all affect the supply of electricity.

Aegis Energy, EDF Group provides a bulwark against these issues as a leading provider of cogeneration technology, also known as Combined Heat and Power (CHP). Aegis CHP systems are a crucial part of energy independence as they deliver reliable energy when there is an interruption in the electricity supply. CHP systems run on natural gas and can provide indefinite backup power, allowing occupants of multi-unit residential buildings to stay cool in searing heat and businesses to continue operations without suffering in stifling conditions.


The mitigating effect CHP systems have on summer electrical issues extends to other markets as well. CHP systems strictly control the temperature and humidity, which protects important historic artifacts and documents in museums and libraries. Ensuring constant temperature and humidity in a controlled environment is also crucial for laboratories. These facilities have high thermal demands due to large process heating loads, hot water heating loads, high electric rates and requirements for consistent, uninterrupted power.

Our CHP systems have generated electricity independent from the grid for more than 30 years, even during the high-demand summer months. They are an oasis from summer electrical issues that could lead to outages. Whether you just opened up a craft beer brewery and are working on your next superb batch, or you are a patron waiting for a perfectly poured pint in a bar or restaurant, losing your cool is not on the menu with our CHP systems!
