In an apparent industry first, gas engine specialist Gen-C will launch a new CHP partnership – the Energy+ Alliance – on stand B503 at World Biogas Expo 2023. “Offering whole-of-market engine support, pioneering performance accessory kits and CHP supply, the Energy+ Alliance enables AD/biogas plant operators to generate more power faster, boosting energy output while cutting costs associated with spares and servicing,” says the group. As well as supplying new and rental CHP engines, the partnership will “empower existing engine owners to break free from expensive and restrictive service contracts and bring their legacy CHP into their digital era”.
More power, faster
Whatever the type of CHP engine, it’s common for owners to find slow start-ups, waiting for service engineers and spares price-hikes all too frustrating. Looking to tackle these pain points, the Energy+ Alliance “has been formed to provide seamless end-to-end CHP support with pioneering engine accessories to give owners instant access to more power faster.”
“Seven of Europe’s brightest CHP innovators bring their wisdom and expertise to the alliance – Gen-C, LouwSon Energy, Motortech, RS Motor, Re-Power, CM Commissioning and LS Parts. Offering a unique market approach, Energy+ Alliance customers will receive engine-boosting engineering, express parts delivery, responsive service, rapid start-ups, digital remote troubleshooting, as well as new, refurbished and rental engines.”
James Thompson, Managing Director of Gen-C and founder member of the Energy+ Alliance says: “Instead of returning to the manufacturer to have your car serviced or modified, think of the Energy+ Alliance like your trusted local garage which offers better value breakdown cover, stocked parts and tech accessories, and pulls out all the stops to get you back on the road fast! We offer independent CHP advice, support and options to super-boost your gas output.”

Next-generation CHP support
“The Energy+ Alliance is a natural evolution of the already strong partnership between our companies, which has deepened over the five years that we have been working together,” said James Thompson.
“AD operators can benefit from our combined experience and expertise, safe in the knowledge that their engine will be fast, smart, efficient and carbon-saving. We can also bring their legacy CHP into the digital era with smart innovations such as open-access control panels and remote monitoring systems, helping owners of all major engine brands to cut their costs and boost their power output. Our network of approved service partners gives us a global reach without the significant financial commitment normally associated with such comprehensive support.”
