Australian-based energy efficient technology business Simons Green Energy has been recognised for its role in championing the developing cogeneration market in Australia.

The company has won the ENER-G Fastest Growing Cogen Partner award for its involvement in the Australian cogeneration/CHP market.

ENER-G, which is European market leader in small-scale cogeneration/CHP,¬†appointed Simons Green Energy as its Australian Cogen Partner in 2012. During 2013, the company’s first full year in partnership with ENER-G, it secured 14 major orders, generating a total of 3.3MW of clean energy. Among these is sport and recreation resort Club Banora on the New South Wales coast, which has estimated it will cut annual energy costs by around $125,000 and¬†reduce carbon emissions by 30 per cent with its 230kW trigeneration system.

ENER-G Combined Power managing director Alan Barlow acknowledged as Australian customers look for energy efficient alternatives to traditional coal-powered energy, clean energy portfolios will increasingly include state-of-the-art cogeneration and trigeneration systems.
