COGEN Europe, the European Association for the Promotion of Cogeneration, is delighted that Clarke Energy has become its latest member. Clarke Energy is an international specialist in gas engine-based cogeneration plants, and one of the largest distributors for INNIO’s Jenbacher gas engines.
COGEN Europe Managing Director Hans Korteweg is convinced that Clarke Energy will be a great asset to the association: “From today on, we will join efforts in promoting our shared vision of a resilient, decentralised and carbon-neutral energy system. We strongly believe that we can achieve this in Europe by 2050 and that cogeneration will be the backbone of the system. We are happy to see that Clarke Energy brings great knowledge and experience to COGEN Europe to advocate for a cost-effective decarbonisation in Europe.”
Mr. Korteweg continues: “Together, we will promote the multiple benefits of cogeneration towards European policymakers and stakeholders. In an increasingly integrated energy system with important shares of renewable energy, cogeneration is consumer-led and uniquely placed to deliver system efficiency, flexibility across energy vectors, reliability and cost reductions. Europe now needs a comprehensive, consistent and predictable framework to trigger investment towards carbon neutrality by 2050.”
Alex Marshall, Group Marketing and Compliance Director from Clarke Energy commented: “We are delighted to be joining COGEN Europe, the leading trade body for the promotion of energy efficient power generation through cogeneration in the European Union and one of the leading international voices. Clarke Energy now operates in 5 European countries including the United Kingdom, France, Ireland, Romania and Greece. All our projects seek to support the decarbonization of the European power grid, through energy efficient and renewable power generation and storage technology.”
