  • 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.

  • Microgrids Can Significantly Lower Operating Costs for Water Utilities

    Energy is one of the most significant operating costs for a water or wastewater utility. Microgrid implementation at certain water or wastewater utility sites can produce sustainable energy that provides significant long-term cost savings. 

  • Shell Microgrid Doubles as Research Lab for Testing New Energy Solutions

    Black & Veatch designed, procured and constructed a microgrid for Shell, which is using it to generate power while it also serves as a working test lab to explore advancements in renewable energy.
