Heat and power,
controlled by you.

Generate heat, power and income with CHP.

Combine a biomass boiler with an ORC or steam turbine: make heat and power.

Whether you already have a biomass boiler or are looking at installing a new system, Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) or a steam turbine should be considered. With a simple installation you can produce your own low cost power whilst gaining access to the CHP tariff though the RHI. Payback in as little as 3 years.

Capture heat from your biomass boiler to enjoy savings on electricity costs, and a better RHI tarrif.

How does an ORC work?

ORC captures excess heat from a biomass boiler using it in a process of evaporation.

A working fluid is pumped through the unit at high pressure, turning into gas. The gas flows through a twin screw expander, turning an alternator to produce power. 

The gas is then cooled and condensed back into a liquid to begin the process again.

Combine with a biomass boiler

The units we install depend on a heat source to produce power. Novalux have a variety of boilers with different outputs depending on your requirements. Already have a biomass boiler? ORC can be easily retrofitted.

Traditional power stations are inefficient. 

Whenever you see steam escaping from cooling towers you’re looking at wasted energy. 

By producing your own power, you’re opting out of supporting big energy – whilst helping your bank balance. 

What about a steam turbine?

A steam turbine works much the same as an ORC. The key difference is that steam drives the process of turning the turbine, therefore generating kinetic energy.


Combine with a steam boiler

When combining a steam turbine with a biomass steam boiler you can create a large drop in pressure due to the high temperature and pressure. The process is able to produce efficient electrical energy on large scale biomass.

Solar PV

Want something low maintenance? Solar PV is a brilliant source of energy during the day and produces a good return, even without subsidies.

Is your site CHP ready?

Export grid connection

Applying for and securing a grid connection is critical in allowing you to export electricity at times when you do not require power. Novalux will do the application for you.

Three phase electricity

Power generation on this scale requires three phase electricity from the grid, although some of our systems can operate in island mode, if necessary.
