Is onsite generation right for your business? What are the technology options and how do you choose the right one? And what is the return on investment? A digital guide has been published to help.

The nine-page guide from edie, produced in association with E.ON, provides an in-depth overview of the different ways to install onsite generation technologies, and the various benefits those technologies can offer.

Changing landscape

Technologies like solar, wind, combined heat and power (CHP), heat pumps and anaerobic digestion (AD) allow businesses to generate, use, and sell their own energy rather than buying it through the grid.

While the subsidies available for installing these technologies are falling, onsite generation still makes good business sense due to its compatibility with impending changes to energy infrastructure and the changing nature of energy bills.

Perfect timing

Phil Gilbert, director of energy solutions at E.ON, said: "Rising energy costs and volatile third party charges can have a real impact on a business’ bottom line, so anything a business can do to take control of these costs can make a huge difference

"Onsite generation can help you save money on your energy bills and even generate income by selling surplus energy back into the grid. 

“With the current changes in the energy market and the move to a smarter, more integrated infrastructure, there’s never been a better time for businesses to invest in the future.”
