Smart power - MicroGen
At a time when energy efficiency and environmental issues are at the forefront of Government policy and becoming increasingly important for businesses and consumers, the interest in micro combined heat and power systems (micro CHP) has never been higher.

The MicroGen appliance, is an innovative micro CHP system, which is being developed for individual homes and small businesses. Like a normal boiler it produces heat and hot water, but generates electricity from the same compact unit. It has been designed to replace existing central heating boilers and can be used in any building with a natural gas supply.

MicroGen is part of BG Group, a FTSE 100 company specialising in natural gas. MicroGen and its business partners are committed to bringing this exciting product to market.
