New acquisition of ENER-G Cogen International

Centrica has acquired ENER-G Cogen International, an established international supplier and operator of Combined Heat and Power (CHP) solutions.

The acquisition has been made by our new Distributed Energy & Power (DE&P) business, which has been set up to help large energy customers take control of their energy. Our vision is to give customers the power to operate, monitor and optimise their energy assets, and CHP will be one of the products on offer. The DE&P strategy and acquisition of ENER-G will also help us change the way we supply and charge for energy in the future as the distribution network evolves.

ENER-G Cogen has over 30 years’ experience in delivering both off-the-shelf and bespoke CHP solutions so this is a great build in terms of our in-house capability in installing and managing distributed energy systems for customers.

About CHP
CHP is an efficient solution for customers who are looking to generate heat and power on-site rather than relying on a gas boiler for heat and the grid for electricity.
It’s a technology that can bring considerable cost and carbon benefits, and which ENER-G Cogen has particular expertise in delivering across a range of organisations including hospitals and universities through to supermarkets and leisure centres.

Our Distributed energy offer
Distributed energy is about approaching energy in a different way and helping our customers to take control. We do this by developing and delivering tailored energy solutions that include on-site generation such as combined heat and power, alongside other technologies that allow them to generate, store and manage their own energy.
