BRUSSELS, BELGIUM – July 5, 2023 – INNIO Group (INNIO*) today announced that its Jenbacher* product brand has been selected as a winner of the COGEN Europe Recognition Award 2023 for Market Development (Organization).
The Jenbacher team, as part of INNIO, was recognized for its expertise in designing truly integrated energy systems that can be replicated at the local level across diverse settings and in various applications in both communities and industries. The jury lauded the Jenbacher experts for their approach to sector development, which focuses on the cost-effective decarbonization of entire energy systems while following system integration principles.
COGEN Europe referenced four major Jenbacher projects in Germany that demonstrate what future energy systems can look like: Stadtwerke Kiel AG, Stadtwerke Tübingen, Stadtwerke Bad Säckingen GmbH, and Bürger Energie Neckar Enz (B.E.N.E.) GmbH & Co. KG. These projects combine wind and/or solar, cogeneration plants, renewable gases, large heat pumps, and storage with intelligent plant management. Jenbacher technology is empowering industries and communities to reduce CO2 emissions significantly. All new Jenbacher engines can be converted to operate on up to 100% hydrogen once hydrogen is available.
“Efficiency must pay off! Only with cogeneration will it be possible to sufficiently relieve the electricity grids and thus ensure a secure, affordable, and climate-neutral energy future,” said Dr. Olaf Berlien, president and CEO of INNIO. “Decentralized, flexible combined heat and power plants are needed to ensure a resilient power and heat supply.”
"INNIO is helping Europe move toward climate neutrality," said Hans Korteweg, managing director for COGEN Europe. “INNIO’s relentless search for reliable and efficient energy solutions is helping Europe meet energy needs while also empowering the way to net zero. INNIO’s work as a pioneer in fuel flexible cogeneration serves as a prime example of developing, applying, and promoting cogeneration to help meet the energy challenges of today and tomorrow.”
COGEN Europe Recognition Awards recognize organizations and individuals for their achievements in developing, applying, and promoting cogeneration in Europe. This year, the winners were chosen by a jury of industry professionals, NGOs, and representatives of the research community with broad sector knowledge.
