This presentation is designed to educate consulting specifying engineers regarding cogeneration projects. The presenter will discuss cogeneration principles including combined heat and power (CHP) and combined cooling, heat and power (CCHP). Common factors that influence the success of most cogeneration projects—such as payback period, spark spread, fuel source analysis, and thermal and electrical considerations—will be discussed in detail.
During this webcast, the presenter will provide examples of successful cogeneration projects from around the world, highlighting the unique attributes of each project. He will also identify best practices to consider when evaluating and planning a potential cogeneration project.
