GE in CHP link up with AB InBev in China

GE is to partner with brewer Anheuser-Busch InBev to develop energy efficiency savings at AB InBev facilities across China.

The link-up with AB InBev will see GE initially designing energy management software solutions to assess current energy and water usage and to target improvements, says GE.

Combined heat and power solutions that utilise gas engines will enable several AB InBev pilot sites to create electricity via either biogas or natural gas, achieving energy efficiency levels of 70% to 90%.

Patrick Regan, global account executive for GE, says: “rather than dealing with these challenges through a singular product or service approach, we’re looking at the whole system.”

AB InBev aims to cut CO2 emissions by 100,000 tonnes annually as a result of the project. In April 2010, AB InBev announced its three-year environmental performance targets and its goal to become the world's most environmentally friendly brewer.

In 2010, AB InBev China reduced water consumption by 20.7%, carbon emissions by 20% and energy consumption by 13.19%.
