Engine Power Plants
Engine power plants are a widely used technology in energy generation, from back-up emergency power to highly efficient combined heat and power generation (cogeneration).
The integration of increasing shares of variable renewable energy into the European electricity grid requires very fast and flexible back-up solutions. Our technology can start up within minutes and provide only the exact amount of electricity needed, thus avoiding plants to run in idle or at an inefficient load level.
Today, decarbonising heating is the next big challenge for Europe. Cogeneration gas engines running on renewable gases, from biogas and biomethane to hydrogen and synthetic methane, therefore represent an optimal, highly efficient and flexible solution for helping Europe decarbonise its heat supply.
With its many advantages and applications —from supplying green and dispatchable electricity and heat to providing emergency power— engine power plant technology will continue playing a vital role in tomorrow’s energy system.
