Cogeneration specialist ENER-G has received double recognition for its global leadership in Combined Heat and Power (CHP) .

The Salford- based company has been shortlisted for the Manufacturer and Engineer of the Year Award in the Insider North West International Trade Awards, which will be announced on 5 December 2013.

This follows ENER-G’s success in the prestigious COGEN Europe 20th anniversary awards for exceptional contribution to the European CHP sector.  ENER-G was the only UK company recognised – receiving The Market Development Award for its international role in the advancement of cogeneration.

ENER-G designs, manufactures, installs,  finances and maintains cogeneration systems from small-scale 4kWe to large industrial 10MWe modular installations – fuelled by natural gas, biogas, propane, biodiesel or pure plant oil (PPO).

The company, which was founded  30 years ago, is a european market leader in CHP –  with 30 million hours of cogeneration operating experience and 695 MW of generation capacity, which  has offset 1.5 million tonnes of CO2.

Alan Barlow, Managing Director of ENER-G Combined Power Ltd, said: “We are delighted to be recognised by the North West business community and our industry peers. UK economic recovery is reliant on export-led growth and we are proud to showcase quality British engineering and manufacturing across the world.”

In the past 12 months ENER-G has designed, developed, manufactured and installed 140 cogeneration systems across the globe – helping to reduce the carbon footprint of major corporations such as GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and David Lloyd Leisure.  

The company has implemented its first projects in the USA, providing cogeneration systems along with other energy efficient measures to a New Jersey university and hospital.

ENER-G has designed and built a €2.6 million renewable energy centre at the Budapest wastewater treatment plant in Csepel – part of the Living Danube programme, which is Europe’s largest environmental investment currently under implementation.

In Holland the company’s  CHP systems are providing low cost heat and power to giant greenhouses.  – scrubbing the exhaust gases so they can be re-released as CO2 into the greenhouses to help plant growth.

ENER-G pioneered the pay-as-you-save Discount Energy Purchase scheme  in the 1990s.This gives cash strapped organisations access to CHP technology and associated energy efficient solutions, without any upfront investment. With no capital outlay for equipment or installation, clients can benefit from an immediate reduction in their energy costs and carbon footprint. The CHP system is then paid for via a metered energy charge that is guaranteed to be lower than previous electricity purchase costs. The plentiful supply of cooling is supplied free.
