The growing demand for natural gas as fuel and the increasing importance of environmental values in Japan have encouraged investments in gas-fired power generation systems. The green point of view has also contributed to the rise of interest towards trigeneration energy sources. This shift in mindset and energy policy has created an opportunity for Wärtsilä to offer its trigeneration solutions to Energy Advance (ENAC) in the form of the Makuhari District Heating and Cooling (DHC) Centre power plant. ENAC is an energy services provider and a subsidiary of Tokyo Gas, Japan’s largest gas company. For Tokyo Gas, ENAC is a way of promoting cogeneration services to its customers nationwide. The trend in the market shows a growing need for trigeneration as well as Combined Heat & Power (CHP) technologies located close to end-users, near the point of consumption.
