Energy, it’s in our nature.

Jenbacher products are fueling life itself, in greenhouses growing food and other plants. The benefits of cogeneration for greenhouses go well beyond heating and lighting. Implementing combined heat and power (CHP) systems with Jenbacher gas engines, you can efficiently power greenhouses and use the CO2 engine exhaust to fertilize the plants—a truly green solution. You can even earn additional revenue by routing excess power to the local utility grid.


Jenbacher engines widely used in North American greenhouses to improve production of vegetables and other crops.

It is no secret that plants require their own constant climate, supplementary lighting and CO2 fertilization for effective growth. All of these components for an efficient greenhouse can be obtained from a Jenbacher power plant.

Combined production of heat and power, near the greenhouse (at the point of use) is usually more efficient vs. separate production at electrical power plants and boiler houses. Jenbacher cogeneration solutions work with efficiency up to 90% and more, helping your greenhouse to decrease operational expenses, have a stable power supply or get access to power in a quite short term.

Tailor-made solution for your greenhouse:

The basic structure of Jenbacher CHP systems includes a gas engine/gas generator unit and heat exchangers that use waste heat. A wide range of heat sources—from gas engine cooling water and oil to an air/fuel gas mixture and exhaust gas—is configured to give each individual customer the greatest possible benefit.

Jenbacher CHP modules can be installed inside buildings or packaged into ready-to-use containerized CHP solutions. Containerized cogeneration power plants allow our customers to start using the benefits of onsite power generation quickly. Our cogeneration plant solutions deliver flexible power generation and a high degree of reliability and availability.
