Cogeneration is the simultaneous generation of heat and electricity through a process of high efficiency energy, respectful with the environment, which ensures the power supply by setting values of trust and security.
This process takes advantage efficiently of the potential energy of the primary energy fuel. A cogeneration plant consumes between 20 and 40% less fuel to produce the same amount of energy as a separate installation generating electricity and thermal energy.
Sofos recommends such facilities to those sectors that consume thermal energy regularly during the year, either in industrial processes (paper industry, dairy, ceramics, food), or in large public and private buildings (hospitals, large sports centres, hotels , etc.). Thanks to cogeneration their overall energy costs will be significantly reduced and if a surplus of electricity is produced, they can opt to sell it to the power company.
