  • 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)

  • United Kingdom(Great Britain) : ENER-G CHP Helps Shrink Carbon Footprint of The Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games
    July 14, 2014
    ENER-G's combined heat and power (CHP) systems are powering 3 of the 14 Commonwealth venues, providing highly efficient on-site electricity and heat.

    The green energy technology is reducing the carbon footprint of the three venues by a total of 1547 tonnes per year, which equates to the environmental benefit of removing 516 cars from the road or the carbon dioxide offset by 1268 acres of forest.

    The newest ENER-G CHP unit, a 150kW system, has been powering Commonwealth swimming venue Glasgow's Tollcross International Swimming Centre since May 2013.

  • USA : Texas, Louisiana Lead U.S. in Combined Heat and Power With $64 Billion in Projects, an Industrial Info News Alert
    July 14, 2014
    Combined heat and power (CHP), also known as cogeneration, is on the rise in the U.S., with more than two-thirds of the nation's planned or active spending in Texas and Louisiana. The increasingly popular process produces electricity and useful thermal energy (heating and/or cooling) from a single source. Industrial Info is tracking 477 CHP-related projects in Texas and Louisiana with a total investment value (TIV) of more than $64 billion, including 273 with a TIV of more than $21.3 billion that are scheduled to begin construction within the next 12 months.

  • Oman : Capstone Secures First Order in Oman for Oil & Gas Production
    July 09, 2014
    Capstone Turbine Corporation, the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that it received its first order in Oman from PipeLine Supply Company, the distributor for Oman and Qatar.

    The end use customer, Consolidated Contractors Energy Development (CCED), chose Capstone microturbines because of their perfect fit in flare gas to power roles. Capstone microturbines can run on various fuels, including associated gas or flare gas. This gas is a byproduct of the oil extraction process that is often burned off, or flared. The Capstone microturbines utilize this gas to generate clean and green power for their operations.

  • Belgium : Cogeneration a Vital Part of $1bn Exxon Mobil Project
    July 08, 2014
    A 130 MW cogeneration unit is set to play a part in a substantial investment being made by Exxon Mobil in, Antwerp, Belgium. Exxon Mobil Corp. has announced that it will investmore than $1bn at a Belgian refinery where it will install a new delayed coker unit to produce marine gasoil and diesel fuel. "Our investments at this refinery, totalling more than $2bn in less than a decade, will contribute to meeting the demand for fuels and finished products from our customers in Europe," Jerry Wascom, the incoming president of ExxonMobil Refining & Supply Co., said in the statement. "This new unit, along with the recently completed 130 MW cogeneration unit and diesel hydrotreater at the Antwerp complex, reaffirms ExxonMobil as a leader in the European and global energy markets."

  • USA : Omnitek Natural Gas Conversion Will Use 100 Percent Biogas
    July 03, 2014
    Omnitek Engineering Corp. will be fulfilling an order for a biogas-powered power generator unit that National Raisin Co. Inc. will be deploying in the San Joaquin Valley region of California.

    Omnitek, which focuses on diesel-to-natural gas engine conversion systems and related products, will provide its natural gas conversion technology for the 250 kW stationary combined heat and power (CHP) unit. The biogas to power the generator will be derived from an anaerobic digester process capable of producing an estimated 100,000 cubic feet of renewable natural gas per day from the farm's liquid waste.

  • USA : Criticism of Utilities for Fixing Stand-By Rate Prohibitive to CHP
    July 01, 2014
    The barriers often imposed on combined heat and power by utilities in the US was highlighted again this week when a college in the state of Iowa ruled out using the technology as a result of prohibitive rate policies.Midwest Energy News reports that Luther College in Iowa has been forced to shelve its plans to adopt CHP as a means of cutting energy consumption. The college were interested in the installation of a 1.4 MW gas turbine, which would generate half the electricity used on the campus each year. The same system was to be used for combined heat and power purposes.

  • USA : Power Plant Operations Threatened by Russia-Based Malware
    July 01, 2014
    A US online security group has detected a cybercrime operation that poses a serious potential threat to power plant operations in Europe and America.

    The group have uncovered the "Energetic Bear" malware operated by a state-backed group with early indications suggesting origination in Russia. The organisation behind the cyber attack is believed to have compromised the computer systems of more than 1,000 organisations in 84 countries in a campaign spanning 18 months. The malware is similar to the Stuxnet computer programme created by the US and Israel that succeeded in infecting and sabotaging Iran's uranium enrichment facilities two years ago.
