Combined Heat and Power (CHP): Enabling Resilient Infrastructure for Critical Facilities Webinar
June 11 , 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
According to recent reports, emergency power outages cost US industries an average of $40-$150 billion…every year. As a result, energy resiliency is (or should be) on the agenda of every organization. And at the forefront of this discussion is Combined Heat and Power (CHP, aka cogeneration) thanks to its ability to simultaneously produce electric and thermal energy from a single fuel source offering organizations a cost-effective and efficient heating, cooling, and energy resiliency solution…in AND out of emergencies.
Join Anne Hampson to explore the opportunities in combined heat and power (CHP, aka cogeneration), its applications for critical facilities, and how you can assess and implement CHP systems at your facility to reduce your energy spend and secure your energy resiliency.Electric grids are evolving rapidly, disrupted by regulatory changes, distributed generation, renewable portfolio standards, and evolving technology. Energy storage is uniquely positioned at the heart of all of this change. Download Greensmith Energy's White Paper to learn more about improving economics and demystifying energy storage systems.
In this webinar we’ll begin by exploring combined heat and power (CHP or cogeneration), how it works, its applications, and its benefits. Within this discussion, we’ll take a special look at CHP as a reliable solution for today’s energy resiliency and grid congestion problems, and what industries are good candidates for CHP installations. We’ll also discuss combined heat and power’s economic and environmental benefits, including: energy efficiency, reliability, and cost-savings, as well as reduced CO2 emissions and grid congestion. Following this discussion, Hampson will outline how to assess your facility as a candidate for CHP, the available opportunities, and the best practices for successful development and implementation of CHP at your facility. Finally, we’ll discuss the emerging economic and policy drivers for the exploding growth of CHP—including the recent US executive order to accelerate CHP investments—and what these mean for you.
By the end of this presentation, you will have a good understanding of what combined heat and power (CHP) is, how it can be a solution to your energy reliability challenges, and how you can go about implementing CHP at your facility.
