Summary

This presentation will explore the economic and environmental costs and benefits of customer-sited CHP owned and operated by an electric utility. Key issues include: 1) analysis of the role of the CHP unit in the utility dispatch order; 2) assessment of the life cycle GHG impacts (including emissions from fuel extraction, processing, transportation and delivery as well as combustion) of CHP vs. avoided utility generation; 3) net impacts of CHP on non-GHG emissions; 4) impact on electric utility ratepayers; and 5) resiliency benefits of CHP.
