LPG is the ideal fuel for a wide range of power generation applications, from small backup generators to large scale power plants. LPG is increasingly used in homes, businesses, hospitals, and for mobile generators to provide efficient, reliable and clean power. As governments are looking to replace polluting coal, diesel or heavy oil plants, LPG offers a cost-efficient alternative and low emissions alternative for areas that are not connected to the natural gas grid.

Local Power

LPG power plants can be set up close to where energy is needed, thus avoiding energy loss over power lines. Virtually every KW/H produced is a KW/H used.

An LPG Power Plant can be combined with wind, solar, hydro or other renewable sources A Partner for Renewable Power arrow_upward Scroll Up / Down arrow_downward

Reliable power

LPG can be stored on-site thus increasing up-time.

Available power

The infrastructure to grow LPG for power generation will already be in place.

LPG is easy to transport and store and burns very efficiently with a heating value about 10% higher than other liquid fossil fuels, and roughly equal to that of natural gas. High efficiency

LPG: A perfect partner for renewable energy

LPG can provide

Consistent, stable power baseload regardless of weather conditions.

LPG does not degrade

It is consistent and reliable. LPG can be used as a clean back-up energy.

LPG can deliver

Modern, low emission power

LPG can back up commercial solar systems

Which store solar-heated water with thermal efficiencies greater than 95%

Hybrid systems

Are already attracting annual, global investment of more than $200 Billion and are commercially viable today

With hybrids

Fuel volumes are lower and existing LPG infrastructure can often be used – natural Gas/LNG systems need infrastructure to be developed, adding to cost.
