What’s Missing When We Value CHP?

2 May , 2018  

CHP

Written by Gita Subramony, ERS for Zondits, May 2, 2018 Combined Heat and Power (CHP) can be a more efficient way to generate electricity. For facilities implementing CHP, the value proposition typically centers on utility bill reduction. Using natural gas to generate electricity on-site can be cheaper than buying electricity from the grid, especially when […]

Better Buildings through CHP

21 Jun , 2016  

Gita Subramony, ERS, for Zondits The national market for combined heat and power (CHP) projects is growing. Traditionally, the technology was most frequently implemented in large and energy-intensive industrial facilities. However, certain regions of the country are realizing that smaller CHP systems can benefit a wide range of facilities and provide not only energy cost […]

CHP & Industrial Heat Demand Driving Future Global Bioenergy Consumption

19 Dec , 2014  

According to Global Bioenergy Supply and Demand projections, a working paper for REmap 2030, global biomass demand could double to 108 EJ by 2030 if all its potential beyond the business as usual is implemented. Nearly a third of this total would be consumed to produce power and district heat generation with a total of 47% going between…
