New DOE fact sheet highlights combined-heat-and-power technology
Combined heat and power (CHP) systems capture the heat from power generation and use it for heating and cooling operations, making the technology almost twice as efficient at fuel use as conventional generation. To encourage businesses to learn more about this efficient and cost-effective technology, the Energy Department has released a new Combined Heat and Power fact sheet and infographic. Contact Energy Services if you are interested in turning the online fact sheet into a bill stuffer for your industrial customers.
Presentations from RMUEE now online
It was a shame you couldn't join your colleagues at the Rocky Mountain Utility Efficiency Exchange in Aspen, Colo., last week. We can't put the camraderie, great food and beautiful scenery online, but the session presentations are available to download.
It was a packed agenda, with loads of great information. Many of the programs that were just beginning seven years ago are now yielding valuable data about what works, what doesn't and (sometimes) why.
The presentations will give you a taste of what you missed, and hopefully convince you to come to the RMUEE next year. You don't have to be from a utility in the Rocky Mountain Region to attend the Exchange, but if you would like to start an event in your area, contact your Energy Services Representative to get the ball rolling.
