In a new business launch, Dalkia has announced the creation of eco2synergy, a service which allows customers to benefit from a CHP installation while avoiding capital investment. The projects are to be financed from long-term power and heat purchase contracts.

Aligned with Dalkia CarbonCare, Cogenco’s eco2synergy service retains total ownership of the CHP unit, conduct all application and design engineering, installation and commissioning as well as operate, maintain and fully finance the CHP unit throughout the life of the contract.

Billing monthly at an agreed tariff per kW for a fixed quantity of energy, eco2synergy CHP units range from 30 kWe to 3 MW and operate using biogas, biomass, bio-diesel, landfill gas and conventional fuels.

Dalkia says the move comes in response to the growing demand for greener energy and the need to cut energy costs.
