Moving Combined Heat & Power Forward in North Carolina
Combined Heat and Power (CHP), also known as cogeneration, is a localized, clean and highly efficient use of multiple forms of energy (e.g. thermal, electrical, mechanical) in a single integrated system. By installing a CHP system designed to meet the thermal load of a facility, CHP can greatly increase a facility’s operational efficiency and decrease energy costs.
Now is your chance to learn more about CHP and how this type of integrated energy system can work for your company.
