    • Application of Reversible Chemical Reactions for Temperature Amplification 

      Ally, M. R.; Rebello, W. J.; Suciu, D. F. (Energy System Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1985-05)
      In a recent survey of 108 industries in the U.S., it was found that large amounts of thermal energy at relatively low temperatures was discharged to the atmosphere through industrial effluents. For the purpose of thermally ...
    • Increase Your Boiler Pressure to Decrease Your Electric Bill: The True Cost of CHP 

      Downing, A. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 2011)
      The majority of small scale steam turbine generator projects are installed as an afterthought to overall plant design. As a plant manager or process engineer, the primary concern is providing the process with the thermal ...
    • Obstacles and Opportunity: Overcoming Barriers in Today's CHP Marketplace 

      Chittum, A.; Kaufman, N. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 2011)
      Combined heat and power (CHP), which can offer tremendous efficiency benefits to industrial facilities around the country, continues to be viewed as a long-term efficiency opportunity. However, the high up-front cost of ...
    • State Barriers to CHP Development 

      Chittum, A.; Kaufman, N. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 2011)
      Every year, ACEEE collects data on regulatory policies in each state that theoretically serve to promote and discourage combined heat and power (CHP) development. In our annual State Energy Efficiency Scorecard (5), we ...
    • State Opportunities for Action: Review of States' Combined Heat and Power Activities 

      Brown, E.; Scott, K.; Elliott, R. N. (2003-05)
      Combined heat and power (CHP) has been the focus of federal attention since the mid-1990s. However, many of the market barriers to CHP are at the state level. As a sign of the maturing of the CHP market, a number of states ...
    • Thermodynamic Analysis of Combined Cycle District Heating System 

      Suresh, S.; Gopalakrishnan, H.; Kosanovic, D. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 2011)
      This paper presents a thermodynamic analysis of the University of Massachusetts' Combined Heat and Power (CHP) District Heating System. Energy and exergy analyses are performed based on the first and second laws of ...
    • Use Spread-Sheet Based CHP Models to Identify and Evaluate Energy Cost Reduction Opportunities in Industrial Plants 

      Kumana, J. D. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 2001-05)
      CHP (for Combined Heat and Power) is fast becoming the internationally accepted terminology for describing the energy utilities generation and distribution systems in industrial plants. The term is all inclusive -boilers, ...
    • Using and Measuring the Combined Heat and Power Advantage 

      John, T. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 2011)
      Combined Heat and Power (CHP), also known as cogeneration, refers to the integration of thermal energy with power generation. CHP is a powerful energy conservation measure that has been identified as an important greenhouse ...
