Enwave Mascot is part of Enwave Australia which is a fully integrated, sustainable energy services provider operating highly efficient thermal energy plant that distributes hot water and/or chilled water to customer buildings, and provides electricity to customers via embedded networks.
Customers connected to these systems enjoy multiple benefits including reduced operating costs, lower emissions and unmatched reliability.
Our current business consists of the ownership and operation of premier utilities, transport, energy and communications infrastructure assets in Australia. Enwave Australia also seeks acquisition opportunities in other infrastructure sectors with similar attributes.
At Mascot we use Tri-generation technology. What is Tri-Generation?
Tri-generation is combined, simultaneous production of three forms of energy from the only one fuel input.
Tri-generation represents one of the most effective energy utilisations. Compared with the separate production of heat and electricity tri-generation can be up to three times more efficient- total efficiency can reach up to 90%. Compared to traditional coal-based electricity generation efficiencies of around 40-50%, tri-generation represents a much more efficient method of fulfilling energy needs. Using natural gas as a fuel source typically a tri-gen system generates hot water for heating, chilled water for cooling and electricity for selling to the grid or load shedding of the connected area consumption.
Apart from reducing costs for input energy, some other benefits of tri-generation include:
Tri-generation ranks among the best available technologies widely supported worldwide.
