White House energy efficiency plan will up output, curb emissions

What Is Combined Heat and Power (CHP)? CHP is a set of cross-cutting efficiency technologies for facilities with substantial on-site demand for electricity and heat. Rather than generating steam and electricity through separate, inefficient processes, CHP involves cogeneration of both, resulting in significant efficiency gains. Both CHP and WHR systems capture heat that is normally wasted in combustion processes and use it to generate electricity or useful thermal energy. Due to its utilization of waste heat, CHP uses approximately 40 percent less energy than conventional production of heat and electricity. CHP technologies have the potential to reach energy efficiencies of 70 percent to 85 percent when used on applicable industrial plants. What Are CHP’s Benefits? Increased CHP utilization provides energy, economic, and environmental benefits. The Department of Energy est...
