Combined Heat & Power (CHP) for Energy Efficiency and Resiliency

Combined Heat & Power (CHP), or cogeneration, is a proven and reliable means to improve energy efficiency and resiliency by co-locating thermal and electrical generation equipment at a single site. This presentation will review CHP fundamentals, CHP technologies, benefits of CHP, site characteristics favorable to CHP, and review case studies. Upon completion, facilities engineers and other interested individuals should be able to understand if CHP is an appropriate technology for their application and how to access free U.S. Department of Energy resources for additional assistance.
