How do we use excess heat to generate electricity?


Cogeneration is the process of combining heat and power to generate electricity.


Heat is a byproduct of electric power plants.


First: We capture heat emitted from power generation plants instead of letting it escape to the atmosphere.


Second: The captured heat is used to boil water that creates steam to power turbines.


Third: The steam turbines power generators to produce additional electricity.


Fourth: We use the additional electricity to power our facilities and supply other energy needs across our operations.


We apply cogeneration technology to utilize energy from wasted heat.
