Also referred to as Cogeneration - On site generation of electricity, heat and/or cooling for the public and private sector
(CHP) See Cogeneration.
Combined production of heat/steam and electric power can save energy compared to generating heat and electricity separately. This can raise efficiency levels to well above 80%. Back up
(CHP) An older term for what is now generally called cogeneration. The term is currently used in Europe and other foreign countries.
A fuel efficient technology which produces electricity and heat from a thermal treatment process
The generation of electricity and the capture and use of otherwise wasted heat energy byproducts. A CHP system is also referred to as cogeneration.
Energy production and conversion process which simultaneously provides electric energy and heat. By using the exhaust heat, which is not used in the electricity generation process in conventional power plants because it is simply released into the environment, the fuel efficiency can be increased significantly by CHP (from 30 - 45% to 80 - 90%). The combined production of heat and power makes economic and ecological sense if both products are used. Today, electricity is still predominantly produced centrally in large-scale plants.
The simultaneous generation of electricity and heat for use within buildings or processes, by recovery of the heat produced in the power generation process. As such, CHP represents the highest efficiency means of generating electricity.
A scheme that provides site-generated electricity and is one of the most cost-effective approaches for reducing CO emissions. A gas turbine is most applicable for the UK business sector, due to the availability of quantities of high grade waste heat which can be used to heat or cool a building.
The generation of electrical power and usable heat from a combustion process. CHP is more efficient than conventional power generation.
The simultaneous production of heat and mechanical work or electricity from a single fuel.
A gas fired power station where the waste heat is used in manufacturing or district heating.
a CHP plant provides simultaneous generation of heat and power (usually electricity) in a single process.
The combined production of heat, usually in the form of steam, and power, usually in the form of electricity.
Combined Heat and CHP is the simultaneous generation of usable heat and power(usually electricity) in a single process, thereby discarding less wasted heat.
system designed to use the heat produced during the generation of electricity; can be coupled to the incineration of solid waste
(CHP) Plant: A plant designed to produce both heat and electricity from a single heat source. Note: This term is being used in place of the term "cogenerator" that was used by EIA in the past. CHP better describes the facilities because some of the plants included do not produce heat and power in a sequential fashion and, as a result, do not meet the legal definition of cogeneration specified in the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act (PURPA).
An efficient technology for generating heat and electricity together.
An efficient, clean, and reliable approach to generating power and thermal energy from a common fuel source
