2G Energy AG is amongst the world’s leading manufacturers of cogeneration systems (CHP) for decentralized energy production and supply by means of combined heat and power.
The company’s product portfolio includes systems with an electrical capacity between 20 kW and 2000 kW for the operation with natural gas, biogas or bio methane. So far, 2G was able to successfully install thousands of CHPs in 25 countries. Especially, in the performance range of 75 kW to 450 kW 2G posses own technological combustion engine concepts characterized by low specific fuel consumptions.
Next to the main production site at its headquarter in Heek, Germany, the company has invested in an additional production and sales & service site in St. Augustine, Florida, USA. 2G’s customers range from farmers to industrial clients, municipalities, real estate industry, up to municipal utilities and big utility companies. The high level of customer satisfaction is founded on the close-knit service network as well as the high technical quality and performance of 2G power stations. Thanks to the combined heat and power performance they achieve an overall degree of efficiency between 85 percent and well above 90 percent.
To further enlarge the technologically leadership the company continuously invests in its R&D activities for gas engines for the use of natural gas, biogas and synthetic gases (e.g. hydrogen). Next to the construction of combined heat and power stations, the company, located in Westphalia in the north-west of Germany, offers integrated solutions reaching from the planning stage and installations to serial service and maintenance work.
Due to its decentral locations, scalability and projectable availability combined heat and power stations shall play a crucial role as part of intelligent networked energy systems – so called virtual power stations – within the ongoing switch to clean energy.
