Industrial and large commercial facilities such as medical, institutional and research buildings have high process loads and heating and cooling requirements that are critical to the day-to-day operations of their business. These facilities require both thermal energy and electricity, which have traditionally been produced in two separate processes. With Combined Heat and Power (CHP) technology, also known as cogeneration, energy and electricity can be produced as a single process and can use energy twice as efficiently as a traditional energy delivery model.
CHP is when waste heat is captured during electricity production and utilized as thermal energy. This use of an otherwise wasted resource results in increased efficiency, significant energy cost savings and increased reliability. In addition, the higher fuel efficiency will result in lower emissions per unit of power produced compared to traditional electrical and steam generating units.
SourceOne has conducted many comprehensive CHP feasibility studies for hospitals, universities, industrial plants, hotels and more. For our Clients who see the business value of CHP, SourceOne assembles and leads teams of professionals who deliver additional services including more detailed studies, schematic level design drawings and CHP project management services. Through years of experience and deep relationships with distributors and developers, SourceOne provides exceptional service to meet each customer’s energy needs.
