This calculator is intended for all those who are seeking to invest in energy-efficient and environmentally sound energy solutions for the future growth of their company. Through the use of the CHP Amortization Calculator, users receive an initial assessment of the economic advantages of their plan to invest in MWM gas engines and cogeneration power plants (CHP), based on the prevailing conditions in their countries.

Simply enter individual values and calculate profitability

The user enters the relevant framework parameters for assessing the profitability of his individual situation and receives a custom profitability calculation based on these inputs. The Amortization Calculator automatically calculates the number of years until you reach your ROI.

The economic efficiency of MWM solutions is determined on the basis of the following specific criteria:

• Gas engine specifications (required properties and output of the CHP plant)
• Year of commissioning
• On-site power and feed
• Energy prices and price development
• Installation type and cost of capital

The results contain comprehensive information relevant for the decision-making process: the overview of energy prices used for the calculation includes price trends, the power, heat, and gas requirements, a description of the most suitable MWM gas engine (technical specifications and benefits), and a summary of the profitability calculation. Afterwards, users can also have the result sent to them via email. The new CHP Amortization Calculator by MWM can be accessed via the following links:
