Trigeneration is the simultaneous production of electricity, heating, and cooling energy.
The thermal energy recovered by the cogenerator is transformed into cooling thanks to the unique combination of an absorption chiller the uses either warm or hot water as a source of primary energy. The absorption unit does not emit climate gases and has zero impact. Combined with a CHP, it allows the use of heat that would otherwise be lost to the environment.
The absorption refrigeration unit may produce chilled water at a temperature of 7 degrees celsius and therefore suitable to a large part of refrigeration systems. The chilled water can be used for environmental, civil, or industrial air conditioning in the summer and serves as an alternative for the production of renewable electrical energy.
Trigeneration in general allows for an increase in the hours of use of the system and consequently produces an economic advantage, reducing the return time on the investment (payback).
