Tag: onsite energy

On-site renewable energy, such as solar or wind power, is a way to power your building while reducing its reliance on fossil fuels and minimizing emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming. Many major companies, educational institutions, and government facilities now use on-site renewable energy to provide power to their facilities.

Advances in Gensets: Powering Diverse Configurations

Advances in Gensets: Powering Diverse Configurations

Advances and technologies that improve performance ensure gensets are more reliable than ever before. Today, gensets run on diesel and natural gas. Tier 4 technology ensures cleaner air quality. They can run in parallel. Improved control systems are bringing “smart” technology to gensets. And systems are less noisy due to

Integrating CHP with Microgrids

Integrating CHP with Microgrids

While combined heat & power (CHP) may not be appropriate for integration into all microgrids, it definitely does have its place in a lot of them.

CHP systems output heat (or cooling), as well as electricity, primarily as a topping cycle. “The prime mover is typically a reci­procating engine or a turbine,”

“People are becoming more dependent on power,” notes Curt Gibson, P.E., power solutions manager for Generac Industrial Products. “We always just assume it’s going to be here…” until it’s not. And that’s where gensets play a crucial role.

Small But Powerful Portable Energy Sources

Small But Powerful Portable Energy Sources

In the theater, they have a saying, “There are no small parts, only small actors.” Never having performed in front of an audience myself, I can’t speak to the truth of this saying. However, in the power generation industry there really are small players: portable power sources. But they still

Turbine Technology

Turbine Technology

In the world of innovative power technology, turbines hold a unique position. They offer power solutions from as low as 250 kW, to hundreds of megawatts, and unlike reciprocal engines with hundreds of moving parts, a turbine is basically designed with one spinning shaft and a minimal parts count. Also,
