Case Studies of Industrial Cogeneration in the U. S.
MetadataShow full item record
This paper describes the results of a survey and evaluation of plant-specific information on industrial cogeneration. The study was performed as part of a project sponsored by the Electric Power Research Institute to evaluate Dual Energy Use Systems (DEUS). The purpose of this project was to evaluate site specific data on DEUS from the utility perspective, identify promising candidates, and define R&D opportunities. The first major task in this DEUS project was a survey of industrial cogeneration sites to identify the technoeconomic and institutional factors affecting the success of cogeneration systems in industry. Sites were selected based on a mix of industry types, geographic location, type of cogeneration system, generating capacity, age of plant and other characteristics. Site-specific surveys were conducted and supplemented by information from secondary sources such as FERC and DOE statistical data systems. This paper presents information on 17 cogeneration facilities. Also presented is information on the perspectives of the relevant utilities.
