Key Factors and Issues for Utility CHP Development

Traditionally, combined heat and power (CHP) plants have been owned and operated by industrial and institutional owners who have enjoyed the efficiency benefits of onsite CHP. With lessons learned from the power supply issues created by Hurricane Sandy, industrial and institutional owners are more focused on distributed generation, including CHPs, as means of obtaining a reliable, resilient and efficient source of energy.

Evaluating CHP Projects: Benefits and Challenges

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the 2016 U.S. electricity markets included 81 gigawatts of installed combined heat and power (CHP) capacity in approximately 4,300 industrial and commercial facilities. While most media coverage is on solar photovoltaics, electric vehicles, microgrids and net metering debates, the role of CHP may in fact represent one of the most significant long-term trends that will affect electric distribution.

Shell Microgrid Doubles as Research Lab for Testing New Energy Solutions
