Combined heat and power (CHP) is the most efficient method of generating power on the planet. Even so, utilities have traditionally not evaluated or deployed CHP as a supply resource, often viewing it as a competing, customer-owned resource which should be avoided. Today, some utilities, including the nation’s largest - Duke Energy, have documented the significant benefits of collaborating with Universities and other large customers with continuous thermal loads to evaluate utility ownership of CHP at key customer sites to develop CHP as a base load resource for all customers. Scope, benefits, structure and results of collaborative developments will be presented.
