The cogeneration plants, also called cogenerative plants, are being developed to implement the operation of the installations of transformation of energy, such as generators, which use the combustion of fuel to produce electricity in turn used for heating of environments and the production of heat.
The principle of operation of the cogeneration plants is to use the residual energy transformations that would be lost in order to obtain a positive effect.
The most typical example is the exploitation of the heat from the combustion occurring inside an engine to heat an environment, as happens in the passenger compartments of cars. The cogeneration system of the car in some cases also takes advantage of the pressure caused by the exhaust gases to set in motion the turbines necessary to overeating, which further improves the efficiency of the whole.
The production of energy through the use of installations of high-efficiency cogeneration has many advantages, both in terms of performance and for economic performance, not to mention a very low environmental impact because it reduces dependence on fossil fuels (oil, gas).
The benefits of cogeneration:
Cogeneration plants are particularly suitable for the cooling and heating of small urban centres, hospitals, shopping centres, office buildings and industrial processes.
Lara Energy is a company based in Santena, in the province of Torino, which is engaged in production, sale and generator rental of all types, from the largest and most complex to the most simple and compact, with which it is then able to meet the most various needs.
Thanks to its great experience in the field, gained through years of activities, today it has the necessary skills to design and develop cogeneration systems that can help to maximise the operating conditions of mechanical devices of any kind.
