Using CHP to reduce utility costs and enhance reliability

Combined heat and power (CHP) applications allow building owners to obtain both electricity and thermal energy from a single source. The approach captures thermal energy that would otherwise be wasted during the electric generation process, and uses it in the form of steam or heat to replace or reduce reliance upon other sources of heat. CHG offers a proven way to reduce energy costs while increasing reliability, making it ideal for building owners that must have dependable power.

The sustainable building professionals at CMTA Consulting Engineers know how to maximize the potential of energy systems to improve efficiency and reduce operating costs. They draw upon a variety of equipment and manufacturers to create the configuration that best meets the specific needs of the application. Our professionals can engineer CHP applications for facilities such as:

  • Industrial operations
  • Hospitals and healthcare facilities
  • University campuses
  • Hotels
  • Research facilities
  • Distributed and backup generation systems
  • Other large structures
