Combined Heat and Power, or cogeneration, is an advanced and highly efficient approach to generating electric power and thermal energy from a single fuel at the point of use. CHP is capable of operating using renewable fuels and has played a major role in helping local jurisdictions and municipalities achieve ZNE goals at the building and portfolio level.
This webinar covers CHP technology basics, CHP as it relates to ZNE, and present additional resources available for successful CHP implementation. Speakers provide a general overview of the CHP technology, as well as the impacts of CHP on their energy use and provide lessons learned regarding the use of CHP as a tool to meet their ZNE goals.
