In separate production of electricity, some energy must be discarded as waste heat, but in cogeneration this thermal energy is put to use. All thermal power plants emit heat during electricity generation, which can be released into the natural environment through cooling towers, flue gas, or by other means.

Biogas and Cogeneration

Biogas has been quietly serving as a fuel for combined heat and power (a.k.a. cogeneration) plants and as a revenue generator for waste treatment facilities, landfills, and dairies for some time, mainly in Europe. But it is becoming more popular here in the US as municipalities and utilities seek out

The fledgling electric utility companies that emerged after Thomas Edison opened his small Pearl Street, New York City, NY, power station in 1882 originally focused on distributed energy generation (DEG) operating within a microgrid. Edison envisioned that the electric utility industry would involve small firms generating direct current (DC) power

Boiling Water in Changing Times

Boilers might be some of the unsung heroes of the civilized world. Even though some are substantial in size, they almost seem too basic to say much about, and yet they are crucial to comfort, hygiene, industrial processes, sterilization, food preparation, and power generation—all kinds of activities discovered to be
