  • United Kingdom(Great Britain) : CHP Powers Major UK Hospital
    December 16, 2014
    A UK regional hospital now covers most of its heating and low-temperature hot water needs with combined heat and power.

    the hospital’s electricity needs, and supplies hot water and heating to the neighbouring spinal treatment centre and day surgery through a 520-metre district heating network.

    Tony McDermott, business development manager (healthcare) at ENER-G Combined Power, said: ‘The district heating system provides the perfect constant warm temperature required by people recovering from spinal injuries at the specialist treatment centre. The CHP system satisfies normal heat requirements, with the backup boilers used if there is peak demand.’ The hospital Trust reports annual savings of over £240,000 (US$391,750)

  • USA : DOE: $5M to Develop Clean Energy Projects at Federal Facilities
    September 23, 2014
    The Energy Department announced $5 million in funding for nine projects that will advance the development of combined heat and power (CHP) and renewable energy technologies at facilities across the federal government and help meet energy efficiency, renewable energy, and greenhouse gas reduction goals.

    The Federal Energy Management Program's (FEMP) inaugural Assisting Federal Facilities with Energy Conservation Technologies (AFFECT) funding announced today will support two main technology areas: CHP and renewable energy. Funding includes nearly $2 million for three projects to increase the use of CHP to generate electric and thermal energy from a single source and more than $3 million for six renewable energy projects to install photovoltaic (PV) systems. Cost shared with industry, the total investment is nearly $120 million.

  • USA : Chesapeake Utilities to Build Heat & Power Plant in Florida
    September 22, 2014
    Chesapeake Utilities Corporation has announced that its unit, Eight Flags Energy, LLC, will build a combined heat and power plant. The construction site, based in Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island in Nassau County, FL is to be leased from Rayonier Advanced Materials, Inc.'s subsidiary, Rayonier Performance Fibers, LLC.

    Chesapeake Utilities will install a Solar Turbines Titan 250 industrial gas turbine generator set at this plant. The plant will get its supply of natural gas from the company's intrastate natural gas pipeline subsidiary, Peninsula Pipeline Company. Once completed, the combined heat and power plant will be able to generate around 20 megawatts (MW) of base load electricity.

  • USA : NY State Program Actively Supports Clean Energy Combined Heat & Power (CHP), Generating Energy On-Site
    September 19, 2014
    2G CENERGY®, Florida-based manufacturer of high-efficiency low emission CHP Cogeneration systems, announced that the New York State Energy Research Development Authority (NYSERDA) has recently approved 2G®'s advanced technology for a state wide CHP incentive program.

    The Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Acceleration Program in the State of New York provides incentives for the installation of pre-qualified CHP systems by approved CHP system vendors in the size range 50kW to 1.3MW.

    A NYSERDA-commissioned study published by the New York State Energy Research Development Authority found there to be a technical potential for approximately 8,500 MW of new CHP systems in NY State spread across roughly 26,000 sites. "Combined Heat and Power (CHP) technology fueled by natural gas is very attractive to owners of factories, production plants, commercial, institutional and municipal buildings.", said Michael Turwitt, 2G CENERGY® President & CEO. "NYSERDA's program has now made it possible for energy consumers to utilize smart cogeneration technologies without any risk", he added.

  • Germany : First ORC at Electric Arc Furnace
    September 19, 2014
    A waste heat recovery Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) turbine recently installed at a steel foundry in Germany has been claimed as a world first. Installed at the Elbe-Stahlwerke Feralpi GmbH (ESF) steel plant in Riesa, Germany, Turboden supplied the system for an electric arc furnace at the site.

    Part of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd, Turboden has now secured a contract for a second similar plant in Italy. This 2 MWe ORC-based plant is under construction for an iron & steel factory in Italy with the heat recovery system to be connected to the local municipal district heating, supplying about 12 MWth.

  • USA : Biogas Cogeneration Powers Oldest US Brewery
    September 16, 2014
    In a move to save energy and improve the efficiency of its beer-making process, the oldest brewery in the US has installed a biogas cogeneration plant.

    The Yuengling brewery in the state of Pennsylvania now has a 400 kW combined heat and power (CHP) plant which covers 20% of its power needs. The CHP system from 2G Cenergy includes an anaerobic digester designed by EMG (Environmental Management Group International), as well as a gas treatment system to dehumidify the saturated gas and remove H2S from the raw biogas. The system has been designed as a dual-fuel module and can be operated on low-BTU biogas, as well as pipeline quality natural gas.
