  • What is Combined Heat and Power (CHP)? CHP (sometimes referred to cogeneration), is the process of recapturing the heat or steam that is produced while making electricity, and making that steam useful in another way. For instance, the steam can be used directly as heat, or it can be used to make chilled water through a chiller and cooling tower. Conceptually, it looks like this.... Grid generation is 30=40% efficient
  • Steam, Domestic hot water and/or HVAC heating. Utilizing “free fuel Chilled water for efficient air conditioning and/or refrigeration Utilizing “free fuel” Adding a steam driven chiller and thermal storage tanks can add another 20=30% to the efficiency. The cooling tower allows the potential for free cooling during shoulder months. TES can shave the peak from electric demand on hot and humid day.
