Four key things to consider when specifying installing Combined Heat and Power
21/07/2016There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach when it comes to the specification and installation of a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) plant, and the industry is divided on when cascades of multiple
CHP modules or single module systems should be used. When assessing which type of system is best for a given application, the following four key areas need to be considered.
Keeping control: The Benefits of CHP Remote Monitoring
