Better Buildings through CHP

Gita Subramony, ERS, for Zondits The national market for combined heat and power (CHP) projects is growing. Traditionally, the technology was most frequently implemented in large and energy-intensive industrial facilities. However, certain regions of the country are realizing that smaller CHP systems can benefit a wide range of facilities and provide not only energy cost
