Mid-Atlantic CHP Technical Assistance Partnership
Welcome to Mid-Atlantic CHP Technical Assistance Partnership. We are committed to exploring a completely new approach to Combined Heat and Power, Waste Heat Recovery, and District Energy Technology. In fact, all of these clean energy applications are the ideal solutions for our country’s energy supply, environment, and economy. Let’s explore them one by one.
Combined Heat and Power
Combined Heat and Power (CHP) is a clean and efficient approach for generating useful thermal energy and electrical power from a single source of fuel. It can be easily installed at any location and can be a great utility resource to supply power and thermal energy to multiple-end users. It always provides a resilient power on a 24X7 basis. In case of any grid outages, CHP can be paired with other distributed energy technology sources such as energy storage and photovoltaics (PV)
No doubt, every CHP system is associated with several processes, including recovery of wasted thermal energy to generate cooling, heating, electricity, or other thermal energies. This is proven extremely beneficial in improving overall energy efficiency and reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In fact, CHP is responsible for supplying 10% of our country’s electricity. However, it has more capacity and should supply more.
Waste Heat Recovery
Waste Heat Recovery is referred to the process of capturing the waste heat emitted from the combustion processes or industrial sites and using that wasted heat to generate useful thermal energy. Nowadays, it is widely used to generate useful thermal energy or transform it into clean electricity or mechanical power. That is why Waste Heat Recovery for power generation is also known as bottoming cycle CHP or waste-heat-to power. No doubt, by including this process, any plant can reduce CO2 emissions as well as energy costs. So, ultimately it will increase the energy efficiency.
District Energy refers to the process of utilizing one or multiple energy sources to provide heating and cooling to multiple users. In fact, it consists of a network of pipes used to distribute the heating and cooling to multiple buildings across a neighborhood or an entire city.
In addition, it provides you with the opportunity to efficiently use the local resources, including waste incineration, solar thermal, geothermal, biomass/gas, and many more. It is also proven extremely beneficial to balance tomorrow’s electricity system. Till now, more than 660 existing district energy systems are operating all over the U.S., and that number will surely increase within a short span of time.
