The original designer of packaged combined heat and power (“CHP” or “cogeneration”) equipment, for over three decades Tecogen has pioneered the development of efficient, reliable and clean technologies for on-site energy production. With over 2,400 units shipped, the company has an industry-leading reputation for delivering quality, technically superior products that reduce energy costs, cut greenhouse gas emissions and alleviate congestion on the national power grid.
Our clean energy and emissions control systems are well suited for a wide variety of facilities ranging from residential and educational buildings to recreational and commercial facilities.Facilities that Benefit from our Products
All of our Combined Heat and Power (CHP) systems use cutting edge technology to generate electrical power, along with thermal power recovered from the natural gas engine. Though a valuable source of energy, thermal power is usually lost in electrical production in the form of waste heat. However, captured and recycled thermal power can be used for very energy demanding heating processes, such as heating spaces and water.How our Technology Works
Our ultra-efficient products include cogeneration modules, which provide electricity and heat, and chillers, which provide air-conditioning and optional free hot water. Our products supply electrical power or mechanical power for cooling, as well as free engine heat that gets recovered and purposefully used at customer facilities. Broadly speaking, they are all considered Combined Heat and Power (CHP) systems.
Our design team focuses on the development of standardized, modular, small-scale products, with a limited number of product configurations and a high degree of factory pre-packaging, so that quick and successful application in a wide variety of customer facilities can be achieved, simplifying field installation and avoiding costly custom design.Start Producing Cleaner Energy
We pride ourselves on having been there first, with innovative, new and better ideas, on numerous occasions. We commercialize, refine and support these pioneering concepts over the long haul for the benefit of our customers.What We’ve Been Up To Since the 1960s
We are an active and leading member of numerous industry associations that support clean CHP and energy efficiency.
