  Yes… Cogeneration, Combined Heat and Power (CHP) can fulfill it for
long way.
               What is Cogeneration ?
• Cogeneration = the simultaneous production of heat and power, with
                 a view to the practical application of both products.

• A way of local energy production.

• Used instead of separate production of heat and electricity.

• Heat is main product, electricity by-product or alternate.

• Uses heat that is lost otherwise.

• Way to use energy more efficiently.

• Different area’s of application.

• Different technologies.
                 Why Cogeneration ?
• Improve energy efficiency.
• Reduce use of fossil fuel.
• Reduce emission of CO2.

• Reduce cost of energy.
• If heat fits demand, the cheapest way of electricity production.
• Improve security of supply.
• Use of organic waste as fuel.
• Position on energy market.
                 Why Cogeneration ?
  Conventional power generation, on average, is only 35% efficient.

  Up to 65% of the energy potential is released as waste heat.

  More recent combined cycle generation can improve this to 55%.

  In conventional electricity generation, further losses of around 5-10%
are associated with the transmission and distribution of electricity.

  Through the utilization of the heat, the efficiency of cogeneration plant
can reach 90% or more.

  Cogeneration therefore offers energy savings ranging between 15-40%.

                          Energy Efficiency (III)
                Cogeneration Principle
• When steam or gas expands through a turbine, nearly 60 to 70% of the
input energy escapes with the exhaust steam or gas.
• This energy in the exhaust steam or gas is utilized for meeting the
process heat requirements, the efficiency of utilization of the fuel increases.
• Such an application, where the electrical power and process heat
requirements are met from the fuel, is termed as “Cogeneration”.
• Since, most of the industries need both heat and electrical energy,
cogeneration can be a sensible investment for industries.
• It is also known as ‘Combined Heat and Power (CHP)’ and ‘Total Energy
  Classification of Cogeneration Systems
• There are two main types of cogeneration concepts
   – Topping Cycle plants
   – Bottoming Cycle plants
                    Topping Cycle
•    A topping cycle plant generates electricity or mechanical
     power first

•    The four types of topping cycle cogeneration systems are:
    1) A gas turbine or diesel engine producing electrical or
        mechanical power followed by a heat recovery boiler to
        create steam to drive a secondary steam turbine. This is
        called a combined-cycle topping system.
                    Topping Cycle
2)   The second type of system burns fuel (any type) to produce
     high-pressure steam that then passes through a steam
     turbine to produce power with the exhaust provides low-
     pressure process steam. This is a steam-turbine topping

3)   A third type employs hot water from an engine jacket cooling
     system flowing to a heat recovery boiler, where it is converted
     to process steam and hot water for space heating

4)   The fourth type is a gas-turbine topping system. A natural gas
     turbine drives a generator. The exhaust gas goes to a heat
     recovery boiler that makes process steam and process heat.
              Bottoming Cycle
 A bottoming cycle plant generates heat first.

 These plants are much less common than topping
 cycle plants.

 These plants exist in heavy industries such as glass or
 metal manufacturing where very high temperature
 furnaces are used.

The waste gases coming out of the furnace is utilized in a
boiler to generate steam, which drives the turbine to
produce electricity.

Fuel cells.

Stirling engines.
• Nowadays there are microturbines as small as 25 kW.
• In general, microturbines can generate anywhere from 25 kW to 200
  kW of electricity.
• Microturbines are small high-speed generator power plants that
  include the turbine, compressor, generator, all of which are on a
  single shaft.
• As well as the power electronics to deliver the power to the grid.
• Moving part, use air bearings and do not need lubricating oil.
• They are primarily fuelled with natural gas, but they can also operate
  with diesel, gasoline or other
• similar high-energy fossil fuels. Research is ongoing on using
                            Fuel cells
• Fuel cells convert the chemical energy of hydrogen and oxygen
  directly into electricity without combustion and mechanical work
  such as in turbines or engines.
• In fuel cells, the fuel and oxidant (air) are continuously fed to the
• All fuel cells are based on the oxidation of hydrogen.
• The hydrogen used as fuel can be derived from a variety of sources,
  including natural gas, propane, coal and renewable such as
  biomass, or, through electrolysis, wind and solar energy.
• A typical single cell delivers up to 1 volt. In order to get sufficient
  power; a fuel cell stack is made of several single cells connected in

                      Stirling engines
• The Stirling engine is an external combustion device and therefore
  substantially from conventional combustion plant where the fuel
  burns inside the machine.
• Heat is supplied to the Stirling engine by an external source, such as
  burning gas, and this makes a working fluid, e.g. helium, expand
  and cause one of the two pistons to move inside a cylinder. This is
  known as the working piston.
• A second piston, known as a displacer, then transfers the gas to a
  cool zone where it is recompressed by the working piston. The
  displacer then transfers the compressed gas or air to the hot region
  and the cycle continues.
• The Stirling engine has fewer moving parts than conventional
  engines, and no valves, tappets, fuel injectors or spark ignition
  systems. It is therefore quieter than normal engines
Stirling engines
                 Heat-to-Power Ratio
• Most important technical parameter influencing the selection of
  the type of cogeneration system.

• The heat-to-power ratio of a facility should match with the
  characteristics of the cogeneration system to be installed.

• It is defined as the “ratio of thermal energy to electricity required
  by the energy consuming facility”.

• It can be expressed in different units such as Btu/kWh,
  kcal/kWh, lb./hr/kW.

 Usefulness of Cogeneration Technologies
• To reduce power and other energy costs.
• To improve productivity and reduce costs of production through reliable
uninterrupted availability of quality power from Cogeneration plant.
• Cogeneration system helps to locate manufacturing facility in remote low
cost areas.
• Improves energy efficiency, and reduces CO2 emissions therefore it
supports sustainable development initiatives.
• The system collects carbon credits which can be traded to earn revenue.
• Due to uninterrupted power supply it improves working conditions of
employees raising their motivation. This indirectly benefits in higher and
better quality production.
 Usefulness of Cogeneration Technologies
• Cogeneration System saves water consumption & water costs.
• Improves brand image and social standing.
• Cogeneration is the most efficient way of generating electricity, heat and
cooling from a given amount of fuel. It saves between 15-40% of energy
when compared with the separate production of electricity and heat.
• Cogeneration helps reduce CO2 emissions significantly. It also reduces
investments into electricity transmission capacity, avoids transmission
losses, and ensures security of high quality power supply.
• A number of different fuels and proven, reliable technologies can be
• A concurrent need for heat, electricity and possibly cooling indicates
suitable sites for cogeneration.
 Usefulness of Cogeneration Technologies
• The initial investment in cogeneration projects can be relatively high but
payback periods between 3-5 years might be expected.
• The payback period and profitability of cogeneration schemes depends
crucially on the difference between the fuel price and the sales price for
• Global environmental concerns, ongoing liberalization of many energy
markets, and projected energy demand growth in developing countries are
likely to improve market conditions for cogeneration in the near future.
        Policies in support of Cogeneration
• In India, power development is the joint responsibility of the Central and
State government.
• In fact, Section 44 (1) of E(S) Act 1948 bars any licensee or any other
person other than the government or a government corporation from
setting up a generating station without the consent of the State Electricity
Board (SEB) concerned.
• And Section 44 (2A) requires the SEB to consult the Central Electricity
Authority (CEA) before issuing a consent for capacities more than 25 MW.
In India, cogeneration is synonymous with captive generation.
• Thus there was a need to open an alternative route other than private
generating companies, where the industries themselves will be interested
in meeting their own power demand by pooling resources together.
Captive/cogeneration power plants offer such an alternative.
• Cogeneration is proven technology.
• Cogeneration helps for sustainable development.
• Cogeneration improves energy efficiency…..
                                   …….if heat is used in a proper way.
• Otherwise it is just a bad way of electricity production.
• Scale is not a limit for cogeneration.
• Right dimensioning is crucial for economic application.
• Economic performance will increase because of environmental policy.
                   for your attention

“Cogeneration, the path to profit
   Sustainable development”
        Policies in support of Cogeneration
• Central   Government Policy Initiatives

•The Center asked all state Governments in October1995 for the first time
to create an institutional mechanism allowing captive/cogeneration power
plants an easy and automatic entry through quick clearance, rational tariff
for purchase of surplus power by the grid, and third party access for direct
sale of power to other industrial units. The Center notified a resolution on
"Promotion of Cogeneration Power Plants" on 6 November1996. The
basic features are:
•It recognized the importance of cogeneration and emphasized its
development with the combined objectives of promoting better utilization
of precious energy resources in industrial activities and creation of
additional power generation capacity in the system.
•Captive power plants of any other persons (including juristic persons and
excepting generating companies) are not subject to the provisions of
Section 29(2) of the E(S) Act.
        Policies in support of Cogeneration
• It recognized that industry in general and a process industry in particular
needs energy in more than one form, and if the energy requirements and
supply to the industrial units are carefully planned overall efficiency of a
very high order is possible to achieve.
•Emphasis on institutional mechanisms highlighting the issues involved.
•Two basic cogeneration cycles have been identified:
•Topping Cycle - Any facility that uses fuel input for power generation and
heat for other industrial activities. In any facility with a supplementary firing
facility, it would be required that the useful heat to be utilized in the
industrial activities, is more than the heat to be supplied to the system
through supplementary firing by at least 20%.
•Bottoming Cycle - Any facility that uses waste industrial heat for power
generation by supplementing heat from any fossil fuel.
•Qualifying Requirements
A facility may qualify to be termed as a cogeneration facility if it satisfies
certain operating and efficiency standards.
        Policies in support of Cogeneration
• Qualifying Requirements for Topping Cycle:
•It depends on the type of fuel used as the overall efficiency levels likely to
be achieved for power generation varies with the choice of fuel. For coal
and refinery bottoms, the sum of useful power output and one half the
useful thermal output should be greater than 45% of the facility's energy
consumption. For liquid fuel, the sum of useful power output and useful
thermal output should be greater than 65% of the facility's energy
•The Facility must be able to supply at least 5 MW of power for at least
250 days in a year.
•Qualifying Requirements for Bottoming Cycle:
The total useful power output in any calendar year must not be less than
50% of the total heat input through supplementary firing.
•Benefits of Cogeneration Systems:
•High efficiency - by utilizing the same fuel to provide heat and electricity,
and thereby reduce fuel consumption, fuel cost, electric utility bills, and
provide economic competitive advantages through a maximized return on
investment capital;
        Policies in support of Cogeneration
• More useful energy due to recovery of otherwise wasted heat; and
energy conservation;
•More environment friendly because of efficient fuel use and reduced air
emissions (GHG, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, particulate) and reduced
thermal pollution;
•A reliable source of power and process steam or heat. This is particularly
important in regions prone to frequent disruptions in electricity supply;
•Onsite electricity generation can eliminate losses (8-10%) in the
transmission and distribution systems; and
•Low gestation period.
•Foreign Investment Policy
•Foreign investors can enter into a joint venture with an Indian partner for
financial and/or technical collaboration and also for setting up renewable
energy-based power generation projects.
•Liberalized foreign investment approval regime to facilitate foreign
investment and transfer of technology through joint ventures.
•The proposals for up to 74% foreign equity participation in a joint venture
qualify for automatic approval.
        Policies in support of Cogeneration
• 100% foreign investment as equity is permissible with the approval of the
Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB).
•Various Chambers of Commerce and Industry Associations in India can
be approached for providing guidance to investors in finding appropriate
•Foreign investors can also set up a liaison office in India.
•Government of India is also encouraging foreign investors to set up
renewable energy based power generation projects on Build Own and
Operate (BOO) basis.
•Policy Initiatives at State Government Level
•For encouraging investment by the private and public sector companies
in power generation through renewable energy, a set of guidelines have
been issued by the Ministry of Non-Conventional Energy Sources for
consideration by the States.
•In addition, some States are providing concession/ exemption in State
Sales Tax and Octroi, etc.
•Maharashtra allows projects on a co-operative basis also and the
Maharashtra State Electricity Board provides equity participation.
•Karnataka extends a subsidy of Rs 2.5 million/MW.
                          Success Story
Godavari Sugars:
• The Godavari Sugar Mills Ltd, Sameerwadi, Karnataka, has a present
crushing capacity of 8,500 TCD. The management conceived the idea of
setting up a 24 MW high-efficiency cogeneration plant in 1997.
• Reliance Energy, Noida was the EPC contractor for the cogeneration
project, and Desein (P) Ltd was the project consultant and also the
Operations & Maintenance (O&M) contractor for the project for five years.
