Seldom has the source of electric generation been more varied than today—from conventional coal to renewable energy. The diversity offers both developers and utility planners multiple generation options. This session will focus on CHP and microgrid case studies, and will give examples of their potential and proven uses within the electric generation sector.
This session will explore sizing CHP units appropriately to maximize economic performance, adding CHP systems to existing assets as a growth strategy, and utilizing creative win-win transactions to solve customer needs while increasing business revenue. Case studies will include examples from Duke and Pepco.
This session will focus on the regulatory permitting aspects of CHP project development, including proven strategies to deal with potential hurdles and impediments.
This session explores the range of technology available for CHP applications. Among the issues to be addressed are combustion turbine scale, package deals, and unique utility applications for solving energy needs are the basis for future projects.
Energy storage and complex control schemes are key aspects of distributed generation. This session focuses on energy storage solutions as well as the challenges faced by distributed generation project developers. IA series of case studies round out this session.
