Energy+ Alliance (E+A)

Seven companies unite to help growers beat the energy crisis and boost crop growth

Gas engine specialist LouwSon Energy will launch an exciting new CHP partnership – the Energy+ Alliance (E+A) – at the Dutch trade show HortiContact 2023. Offering whole-of-market engine support, CHP supply, and energy generation solutions, E+A will help growers and greenhouse owners to generate on-site heat and power faster and more efficiently – plus, capture CO2 to accelerate crop and plant growth.

More power, faster
The concept of the Energy+ Alliance is to provide a seamless end-to-end CHP offering by bringing together seven of Europe’s leading CHP engine innovators: LouwSon Energy, Gen-C, Motortech, RS Motor, Re-Power, CM Commissioning, and LS Parts. Each business delivers one critical part of either CHP service or supply. By combining their specialisms, customers can quickly gain access to the complete suite of engine-boosting engineering, express parts delivery, responsive service, and digital remote troubleshooting, as well as new, refurbished, and rental engines.  

With decades of combined experience in the gas engine sector, a dedicated R&D division, and a fresh approach to CHP support which frees owners from restrictive contracts, the Energy+ Alliance puts the power back in the hands of the engine owner, giving growers peace of mind that their day-to-day power production is constantly efficient, effective and emissions compliant.
