It’s worth having a CHP unit on your property
Use our CHP unit calculator to find out which CHP is best suited to your needs. Our team will calculate your savings quickly and free of charge and send you our offer by e-mail.
Then you can choose whether to rent or purchase the CHP unit.
Possible applications of a cogeneration plant
The parallel generation of heat and electricity results in a wide range of applications, e.g. for:
- Office buildings
- Shopping malls
- Public facilities (e.g. schools, swimming pools)
- Single- or multi-family houses with high electricity and heat consumption
Benefits and benefits of a CHP
In the name of the “Energiewende” (energy revolution), a state-of-the-art and effective CHP plant is a future-proof investment in your energy supply. The overall efficiency of a combined heat and power plant is very high. It provides you with dual benefits with a stable supply security through the simultaneous generation of heat and electricity.

Heat- and CHP-provision with sense electra
In the course of modernization your heating plant sense electra plans, builds and finances your CHP plant. Before installing a CHP, our engineers will check both the spatial and local conditions as well as the cost-effectiveness of using a combined heat and power plant for you. All costs incurred for the installation, operation and maintenance of your energy system are wholly owned by sense electra GmbH.
There are no additional expenses for you. You pay the contractually agreed basic and working price of your electricity and gas consumption.
Your advantages with sense electra
We reduce your energy costs
We assume the maintenance costs
We assume the investment costs
No monthly billing practices
What is a combined heat and power plant?
The combined heat and power plant (CHP) is a compact and modern power plant about the size of a large refrigerator (different depending on model and power). Cogeneration is used to produce electricity and heat at the same time. You can use this energy directly on site, which can reduce your energy costs and counter any fluctuations in the power grid.
Combined heat and power plants are divided into different model types and performance classes. Depending on the heat demand of the property we select the right CHP.
For whom is a CHP worthwhile?
With correct dimensioning, the implementation of a combined heat and power plant is profitable, especially in industry and commerce. In order to exploit the full potential of the plant, it should operate as much as possible throughout the year. To do so, a constant demand for heating or cooling must exist on the property.
You can use the produced electricity from the combined heat and power plant directly on site or feed it into the power grid if your electricity consumption is lower than the electricity production.

Installation of a CHP with modernization of the heating
Have you decided to modernize your heating system with a CHP? Then contact us and get started:
- Inspection of the property
Our engineers examine the spatial and local conditions in a joint property inspection.
- Estimation of economic efficiency
We calculate the economic conditions for the operation of a combined heat and power plant in the form of a detailed cost statement.
- Testing the heating system
During the inspection of your premises, we will simultaneously check your existing heating system. Subsequently, the planning of the modernization measures takes place.
- Installation & commissioning
Depending on your heat demand, the suitable CHP model type will be installed and the heating system renewed according to the modernization measures.
- Registration of the cogeneration unit
The registration and the application for funding are carried out at various offices.
