CHP efficiency

Fed Agencies Promote CHP for Energy Resiliency

CHP efficiencyDuring and after Hurricane Sandy, combined heat and power (CHP) enabled a number of critical facilities to continue operating when the electric grid went down, according to the US Department of Energy, the EPA and the Department of Housing and Urban Development, which have jointly released a guide to provide information on what factors must be considered when configuring a CHP system to operate independently of the grid.

CHP, also known as cogeneration, is the simultaneous production of electricity and heat from a single fuel source, such as natural gas, biomass, biogas, coal, waste heat, or oil. Instead of purchasing electricity from the grid and burning fuel in an on-site furnace or boiler to produce thermal energy (for heating, cooling, dehumidification, or process needs), facilities can use CHP to provide both energy services – electric power and thermal energy – in one energy-efficient step, says The Guide to Using Combined Heat and Power for Enhancing Reliability and Resiliency in Buildings.
