These include users such as commercial buildings, shopping centres, hospitals, government complexes and industry. Cogent provides cost effective, efficient, reliable and low carbon energy to clients using the latest cogeneration and absorption chilling technologies.
Cogent is an energy company that builds, operates, owns and maintains the cogeneration plant with the site owner paying a monthly energy bill that is competitive to an equivalent 50% accredited GreenPower grid energy product (based on mid-2009 market rates).
Cogent Energy has developed a unique and innovative solution, cogentpower, to address the export and connection issues that have been limiting the use of cogeneration plants at large sites with multiple grid feeders or multiple remote sites. Read more
about how your sites may benefit from the operating efficiencies and lower carbon emissions of this unique solution.
Cogent Energy Features:
Electricity From Natural Gas - Onsite
Cogent’s solution uses natural gas engines to generate electricity onsite, with the waste heat captured to provide heating or conversion to chilled water for cooling through an absorption chiller. When an absorption chiller is used, the solution is often referred to as trigeneration.
Smart Energy Management
Cogent’s solution is designed to operate during the peak period to meet most of the sites electricity, hot water, steam or chilled water requirements and is connected to the grid so that the grid can be used for peak top-up, off peak period and emergency back-up. Cogent’s solution can also operate during off peak periods, depending on the site's energy profile and customer requirements.
Cogeneration plant can be fitted to existing sites as well as incorporated into new sites. With a cogeneration solution designed specifically for a large site, Cogent will deliver impressive carbon emission reduction and cost benefits today and well into the future.
Low Emissions & High Efficiencies
Cogent’s solution may reduce site carbon emissions by up to 50% compared to conventional coal-sourced grid energy.
