Inspirit Charger – New Generation Heat and Power Boiler for an Energy Efficient Future
The Inspirit Charger micro combined heat and power boiler (microCHP) empowers building owners with on-site heat and power generation for their building’s needs from a compact, easy to install, gas-fired appliance featuring Inspirit Energy’s patented “sealed for life” power generation technology.
Benefits of micro combined heat & power
The Inspirit Charger microCHP (micro combined heat and power) unit empowers building owners to harvest electricity as a by-product when also generating heat for their building’s needs. Electricity is provided from low cost and low carbon natural gas, on-site, at efficiencies far higher than those provided by the national grid. Building owners gain control of their own power generation, independent of the grid and enjoy lower energy costs year on year, whilst dramatically reducing the building’s carbon footprint.
Generate Heat & Electricity All Year
The Inspirit Charger 3.1 will provide a peak electrical power output of 6.4kW and heat output of 15kW.
Offset Your Electricity Bill
Produces electricity at a fraction of the cost the grid supply with the ability to export electricity back to the utility grid and reduce electricity costs year on year. A short payback period from a low carbon cost saver
Reduced Carbon Footprint
The Inspirit Charger reduces dependence on grid supply through on-site local generation. A single Inspirit Charger saves up to 4 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year. With the added potential in the UK to benefit from either Feed-in Tariffs or Renewable Obligation Certificates, the Inspirit Charger makes perfect economic and environmental sense.
Simple Installation & Maintenance
No structural or specific planning permission is required. With low maintenance and quiet operation, the Inspirit Charger is suitable for installation in a plant room, garage or utility room. Further, the “sealed for life” design of the Stirling Engine power module provides total peace of mind to the owner.
*The Inspirit Charger next generation heat and power boiler is specifically designed to meet the challenge of reduced carbon energy supply and is capable of running on natural gas, LPG and Bio Fuels.
A low carbon approach to powering your residential or commercial property
The Inspirit Charger microCHP unit is an appliance powered by gas to provide both heat and electricity to the building it serves. More traditional gas fired boilers provide only heat as an output. The Inspirit Charger appears, externally, to be very similar to a traditional gas fired boiler but also incorporates the Inspirit “sealed for life” power generation technology to produce electricity as a by-product of the heat generating process.
Small enough for residential use
The compact size, small footprint and flexible flueing make the Inspirit Charger compatible with most domestic properties. With 15kW heat output, 6.4kW electrical output and automatic output adjustment – the Inspirit Charger 3.1 is an ideal match for larger UK properties.
Large enough for commercial use
The 6.4kW electrical and 15kW thermal output makes the Inspirit Charger 3.1 a perfect addition or replacement for existing plant room heating equipment. Further, the ability of the Inspirit Charger to be installed in multiple “cascade” operation ensures the unit configuration can be optimised for all gas fired heating installations.
Dramatically improve your low carbon credentials with microCHP, or complement your existing solar installations
The Inspirit Charger is designed to operate as a single, standalone appliance for a building’s energy needs or as an add-on appliance to supplement existing or replacement heating equipment. However, the Inspirit Charger can also be configured for multiple units installed in a “cascade” type configuration to closely match a building’s total heat demand by firing only as many units as needed at any one time. In this cascade approach the building owner can enjoy a maximised level of electrical power generation at all times as illustrated in the graph below.

Compatible with all existing installations
Complement your localised electricity generation
Renewables can be too intermittent and too unpredictable in their delivery to provide the complete power solution. Introducing an Inspirit Charger, a reliable and controllable technology, can solve this issue.
Enhance Your Financial Return
Substituting grid electricity usage with electricity from an Inspirit Charger halves related carbon emissions. Just like with solar power or other localised electricity generation methods, there is potential to even further increase via incentive schemes such as the UK Feed In Tariff, in addition to similar incomes offered for technologies such as solar PV
