Tom McGeehan
Combined heat and power (CHP), also known as cogeneration, and combined cooling, heating, and power (CCHP), also known as tri-generation, can be very beneficial to organizations, especially those with abundant natural gas.  CHP is the production of both power and heat from a single fuel source.  By making use of the waste heat from onsite electricity production for heating, CHP increases fuel efficiency and decreases energy costs.  For increased energy utilization, CCHP incorporates a third technology, absorption chilling, to offset energy expenses by utilizing the waste heat for cooling.  Capstone microturbines can be sized to fit your CHP and CCHP needs.  The microturbines have proven to significantly reduce energy costs in civic, cultural, corporate, commercial, industrial, federal, healthcare, educational, science, and technological facilities while reducing their carbon footprint upon commissioning.
