MWM unveils new Amortization Calculator
Find answers online to questions concerning the profitability and energy payback time of investments in MWM cogeneration power plants (CHP) and gas engines.
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:
• Installation country
• Gas types: natural gas, biogas, wastewater digester gas, or landfill gas
• 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:
