Utilise recaptured waste heat


Combined heat and power (CHP) systems are a hybrid of an electric generator and a boiler, supplying both electricity and heat simultaneously.

When you see clouds of vapour rising from the cooling towers of a power station, this is an example of wasted heat and wasted energy.  A CHP unit captures this wasted energy and puts it back into the power generation system.

Traditional grid electricity is less than 20% efficient, meaning that less than 20% of the energy used to generate electricity is converted into usable power. On-site boilers, which are used for heating, have an efficiency of less than 70%, with older boilers typically being less efficient. In contrast, a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) scheme is over 85% efficient. This high efficiency is achieved because CHP systems generate both electricity and useful heat from the same energy source, making better use of the input fuel.

The TED Gen team oversees all aspects of CHP schemes, ensuring they meet the government’s standards as outlined in the CHP Quality Assurance (CHPQA) certification and qualification processes. This certification ensures that the CHP systems are operating efficiently and in compliance with regulations.

What are the benefits of a next generation GAS CHP?

TED Gen’s scheme is 85%+ efficient and adheres to government standards as laid out within the CHPQA certification and qualification processes.

We offer the latest CHP technology with zero capital outlay and no on-going maintenance costs.

  • Uses no client financial resources to invest in the project
  • Energy purchase agreement tracks client tariffs and guarantees savings against tariff for the full term
  • Asset remains off balance sheet
  • Performance risk of the scheme is with TED Gen
  • Maintenance costs remain with TED Gen
  • Managing CHPQA, contractors, call outs and monitoring remains responsibility of TED Gen

Earn significant cost savings with TED Gen

With a TED Gen CHP, you can make significant cost savings via:

  • Reduced heating costs
  • Reduced electrical costs
  • Reduced maintenance costs
  • Extended life of existing plant due to reduced running hours
  • Savings on government levies and taxes such as Triad charges etc.
  • Reduced dependence on power supply from the grid
  • Utilise recaptured waste heat
  • Save hundreds of tonnes of carbon each year

A CHP is activated in response to a demand for heat; while operating, it supplies an amount of electricity to supplement your existing electricity supply.  This will help reduce your bills – it does not replace your existing electricity arrangements.  Get in touch today and start saving!

What is CHP?

Combined heat and power (CHP) is a process that captures and uses the heat that was typically a waste by-product of electricity generations.  

More and more businesses are installing CHP units, not only to reduce their carbon footprint, but also make significant savings on energy bills.

CHP initiatives are supported by the UK Government as studies have shown it as an effective means of reducing emissions and preventing energy network losses.

CHP technology has advanced considerably and there are a variety of unit types that are suited to different settings.  Microchip boilers are most common, but other solutions such as fuel cell boilers are sometimes more appropriate.

Essentially, a CHP plant combines an electrical generator with specialist equipment that harnesses and uses the heat produced by the generator, rather than emitting it as waste.

A bespoke CHP system uses the thermal by-products of generation to create additional thermal energy and electricity within an integrated system.  Energy entirely sourced from separate providers is subject to greater waste and emissions.

A CHP is an efficient way to reduce energy costs and meet environmental targets as the primary energy source can be used multiple times. 

Yes!  Energy cogeneration solutions that make use of the waste by-products in fossil fuel-based generation could reduce carbon emissions by up to 30% when compared with typical boiler and power station systems.

TED Gen offer clean energy through Combined Heat and Power systems that we will install and maintain at no initial cost to your business.

You just pay for the energy you use; the CHP system will re-integrate energy that would previously have been lost so you can start saving straight away.

The monthly cost will vary depending on the scale and requirements of your business, and how much you currently pay for gas and electricity.  TED Gen understand the importance of this, which is why we offer a free consultation and assessment so that we can advise you of the likely savings year-by-year.

With CHP, you can make significant cost savings

  • Next Generation technology
  • Only paying for the energy you use
  • Paying a discounted rate vs your
    prevailing tariff
  • Saving on government levies and
    taxes such as Triad charges and CRC


We offer total transparency on operating costs so that you can start making concrete plans immediately.
