    Presentation Description

    Combined Heat and Power (Cogeneration) – Why it Awesome, sometimes.

    This presentation will address current technology and trends in combined heat and power and where it can be successfully applied.  What is the role of the HVAC engineer in identifying opportunities for CHP and helping to educate clients about the risks, pitfalls and potential rewards of CHP systems?  A couple of recent projects, both awesome and not so awesome will be highlighted.
