MicroCHP helps reduce carbon emissions

Baxi’s Ecogen microCHP unit uses natural gas and can simultaneously produce 1 kW of electricity using a free-piston Stirling engine and 6 kW of heat. Heat output can be modulated down to 3 kW while still generating electricity, and a supplementary burner can deliver an additional 18 kW of heat.

A number of Ecogen units have been installed in homes for over a year, providing heating, hot water and electricity. These field trials and Baxi’s laboratory testing have indicated CO2 savings of a tonne a year and a significant reduction in energy bills.

These units are said to provide an effective mass-market way of helping utilities meet the Government’s Carbon Emissions Reduction Target (CERT).
