CHP technology is located near or at the point of use so it eliminates the losses that occur in the transmission and distribution of electricity from a power plant to the user. By generating heat and power in a combined process, CHP systems are more cost effective, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and provide more efficient use of natural resources.

Combined heat and power (CHP), or cogeneration, is the simultaneous generation of useful mechanical and thermal energy in a single, integrated system.CHP can be configured as a topping or bottoming cycle. In a typical topping cycle system, fuel is combusted in a prime mover, such as reciprocating engines, combustion or gas turbines, steam turbines, microturbines, or fuel cells, which drives
A combined-cycle power plant uses both a gas and a steam turbine together to produce up to 50 percent more electricity from the same fuel than a traditional simple-cycle plant. The waste heat from the gas turbine is routed to the nearby steam turbine, which generates extra power. Improve Performance with Digital.

A new Combined Heat and Power (CHP) plant owned and operated by Duke Energy will generate 15 megawatts (MW) of electricity as early as November 2019. The system will provide South Carolina's Clemson University with steam, and allow the university to island from the grid to keep critical loads operational.
Combined Heat and Power. Also known as cogeneration, combined heat and power is a way to increase the efficiency of power plants. Standard power plants effectively use just 40 percent of the fuel they burn to produce electricity. Sixty percent of the fuel used in the electric production process ends up being rejected or "wasted" up the smokestack.
Have the best of both worlds. With systems powered by natural gas or diesel, we capture "waste heat" and make sure it doesn't go to waste - generally cutting your fuel (and CO2 production) in half while also saving you up to 35 percent on overall energy costs. Reciprocating - engine generators from as small as 300 kW to more than 100 MW Improved electric supply reliability Easy system
A CHP plant converts fuel (usually natural gas or propane) to electricity and thermal energy in the form of steam, hot water and/or chilled water. IEM Power Systems deliver solutions that help utilize waste heat energy to generate 'green power' reducing utility costs and improving the facility's sustainability.

Therefore, CHP is much more efficient than using conventional grid power where centralized power plants reject this waste heat back to mother nature and then transmit the electric power over long distances with resulting losses. The differential in fuel price to the local electrical price determines the economics of CHP installations.
