Commercial CHP Solutions

Optimize your company’s energy OPEX with CHP or CCHP

It’s a simple idea: If you can’t get to the power source, put the power source onsite. That is just what is happening at a variety of commercial applications around the globe, where you’ll find intelligent onsite combined heat and power (CHP) generation or combined cooling, heat, and power (CCHP) using Jenbacher engines. Office buildings, convention centers, airports, shopping malls, sports arenas, universities, hotels, and theme parks—all can benefit from onsite power.

That’s because cogeneration (CHP) saves approximately 40% of fuel compared to separate generation, and building CHP systems where they are used avoids significant supply and distribution losses. Jenbacher engines can generate CHP total efficiencies up to 90%.  And trigeneration (CCHP) can save you even more. Now that’s intelligent.

In addition, you can combine your CHP or CCHP plant with other power generation, storage, and control solutions as part of a microgrid.

Why onsite power generation

Jenbacher onsite cogeneration (CHP) and trigeneration (CCHP) solutions can help you achieve your economic targets, including:

  • Decrease your energy use with better efficiency, when compared to centralized energy sources
  • Launch/extend your company's operations with new power access in energy-deficient areas
  • Decrease your carbon footprint and meet your environmental commitments
  • Lower your downtime with improved quality of the electricity supply in regions with an unstable grid infrastructure

Type 4 B-Version Upgrade (INNIO)

Installed inside a building, an onsite power system usually includes an engine/generator unit and heat exchangers that use waste heat. A wide range of heat sources—from commercial gas engine cooling water and oil to an air/fuel gas mixture and exhaust gas—can be configured for each individual application. Jenbacher solutions deliver flexible power generation and a high degree of reliability and availability to meet your specific energy needs.


Jenbacher ContainerAs an option, Jenbacher CHP modules can be packaged in containerized solutions. Our ready-to-use containerized genset means reduced construction times for faster onsite power generation.



Depending on your needs, you might want to consider using a combined cooling, heat, and power (CCHP) system based on Jenbacher engine technology. These trigeneration systems combine the cogeneration plant with absorption chillers to efficiently generate air conditioning and/or refrigeration.

Cogeneration equipment offers high efficiency and low emissions. Absorption chillers provide an economic and environmental alternative to conventional refrigeration with compression chillers. Combining those two elements enables excellent total fuel efficiency, elimination of HCFC/CFC refrigerants, and overall air emission reductions.

Flexible solutions

Jenbacher commercial power generation solutions can work in baseload, mid-merit, and peak shaving applications, and you can modify these, depending on your needs. You can even feed excess electricity into the public power grid for an additional revenue source.

Depending on your requirements, Jenbacher solutions efficiently work in both island mode and grid parallel mode.
