Total annual fuel saving can be used as criterion of thermal efficiency. Annual fuel saving is estimated as a difference between total annual reference fuel consumption for combined thermal and electric power supply within a year from power units, installed in boiler-houses, and annual fuel consumption for separate supply of the same quantity of thermal and electric power.
