Receive a No-Cost CHP Site Screening at the 2016 ASHE Conference
Representatives from the US DOE CHP Technical Assistance Partnerships (CHP TAPs) will be in Denver on July 11-12 for the 2016 ASHE Conference. The CHP TAPs offer no-cost CHP screenings to healthcare facilities interested in energy cost savings and increasing resiliency. If you are interested in learning more about CHP and the technical assistance offerings of the CHP TAPs, we encourage you to visit us at Booth 147. We can complete a CHP screening of your facility the day you visit us at the conference or if you prefer, send the data to us in advance and we’ll have the screening waiting for you when you arrive. All we need is one year’s worth of electric and natural gas utility data and some additional information found in this Site Questionnaire.
Combined Heat and Power (CHP) is...an efficient and clean approach to generating electric power and useful thermal energy from a single fuel source at the point of use. Every CHP application involves the recovery of otherwise-wasted thermal energy to produce cooling, heating or process thermal energy or electricity, improving energy efficiency and reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. CHP already supplies over 10% of our nation's electricity, and can and should supply more.
District Energy is...CHP, central heating, and/or central cooling applied to an entire university, office park, medical campus, mixed use sustainable development, or downtown. Over 400 building networks in the U.S. already use district energy, and the number is on the rise.
Waste Heat Recovery is...capturing waste heat that an industrial site or combustion process is already emitting, and using it to provide useful thermal energy elsewhere in the facility or turning it into clean electricity or mechanical power. Waste heat recovery for power generation is also known as bottoming cycle CHP or waste heat to power.
All of these are... CLEAN ENERGY APPLICATIONS- a better solution for our country's energy supply, economy, and environment.
