Gas-fired power equipment supplier 2G Energy Inc. will work with service firm LIMA Company to deploy net-zero ready Combined Heat and Power projects across the U.S.

LIMA will leverage 2G's CHP products to ensure economic savings, business resilience and carbon reduction for commercial and industrial energy users.2G supplies cogeneration equipment powered by natural gas, biogas and includes hydrogen, the latter of which can be burned without releasing carbon emissions.

Hydrogen does not have a carbon atom, but requires significant supply, transmission and combustion challenges. To be considered truly "green" hydrogen, it must be produced from electroysis powered by clean energy resources.

 2G Energy Inc.’s CEO, Dan Jones said LIMA will bring its thermal energy integration skills to the collaboration and added, “Every successful CHP project needs three legs to stand on including equipment, installation, and long-term service. Our partnership with LIMA achieves all three.”

Industrial plans and manufacturers often require dedication power plants, both to supply electricity and sometimes heat for industrial processes. Based in Germany with offices in the U.S. 2G Energy has installed thousands of CHP plants in 55 countries.

The CHP systems range from 20 kW to 2 MW in electrical output.
