CHP is the simultaneous production of electrical power and useful thermal energy from a single fuel source.
Western Pennsylvania has abundant resources of natural gas and biomass fuels. Given a facility with appropriate thermal and electric load profiles, a CHP system utilizing such fuels can substantially reduce a site’s total energy expenditures and simultaneously reduce its total carbon footprint.
This workshop will focus on four major benefits of CHP: Cost Savings; Emissions Reduction; Reliability; National Security, and will include:
