Reduced electricity and heating bills for families and small businesses

EnerTwin product information sheet

Micro Turbine Technology for Micro Combined Heat and Power plants (MTT Micro CHP)

The problem

For many, heating, hot water and electricity are major expenses. Small-scale combined heat
and power (CHP) systems, known as micro-CHP, can cut these costs. With a micro-CHP system,
households and small businesses generate their own electricity as a by-product of heat
production. It’s energy efficient, and reduces dependence on electricity utilities – leading to big
savings in costs and carbon emissions.

EnerTwin is a micro-CHP unit from MTT. It uses proven, low-maintenance technology to give
households and small businesses a cheaper, smaller and quieter alternative to other CHP models
on the market and to existing conventional boilers.

The solution

The EnerTwin is a micro-CHP system where a boiler and a small power plant are combined in a
single robust device. The core of the EnerTwin is a micro gas turbine that drives a generator and
can produce up to 3kW of electrical power and 15 kW of thermal power for heating and hot water.

The EnerTwin can be installed in family homes and offices with a natural gas, propane, heating oil or biogas supply. It can be used as a stand-alone system, or in combination with tanks and boilers.

Multiple EnerTwin systems can be installed together, making it suitable for use in a wide variety of situations.

The EnerTwin is available from energy suppliers and certified dealers who tailor and support each
unit to meet the specific needs of customers.
