CHP in NYC: Can Cogeneration Be The Next Big Energy Resource For Urban Buildings?
Tuesday, Aug 16, 2011
Combined heat & power (CHP), sometimes called cogeneration, is a method of simultaneously generating power and thermal energy (heating and cooling) using the same fuel source. The number of buildings and campuses adopting this technology is growing, yet this growth begs several questions to be explored:
• Is CHP an economical energy solution?
• How do distributed generation resources affect the utility grid and demand side management?
• What kinds of environmental benefit or impacts are associated with CHP?
• What are local and state policy positions on CHP in NYC?
• Can CHP help backfill local resources if Indian Point is no longer available?
