Ener-G introduces small-scale CHP from Japan


Ener-G now offers small-scale CHP in the UK following an agreement with Japanese manufacturer Yanmar. These units are available with electrical outputs from 4 to 25 kW. The largest unit is said to be capable of reducing carbon emissions by 66 t a year compared with conventional electricity generation.

Yanmar micro-CHP systems can be installed in restricted outdoor spaces, similar to those required by air-conditioning units. They are described as having low operating noise levels. Service intervals are 10 000 — about two years. Remote monitoring by Ener­-G ensures that systems run at optimum performance to maximise uptime.

Ener-G’s sales manager Anthony Mayall tells us, ‘UK-based testing of the micro-CHP equipment has proved very encouraging. We have had a unit running continuously for 10 months in our test centre, which is stopped and started each day to test reliability. The unit equipment is all self contained, hence we found installation and commissioning very straightforward. In addition, the unit is externally mounted to test it against the elements.’
