Integrating Hybrid Technologies with CHP. To include discussion around renewable and clean energy fuels

An introduction to the latest developments in CHP driven power generation to include additional hybrid technologies. Alex will discuss the CHP anchored microgrid space as well as describing the use of renewable fuels and zero emission fuels.

Past Events

Significant incentive opportunities for CHP and distributed clean energy projects are available for a limited time through the federal Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). Attend the “CHP Education Webinar Series”, co-sponsored by the Midwest Cogeneration Association and the US DOE Midwest & Central CHP Technical Assistance Partnership (CHP TAP), on Wednesday, January 25 at 11:00am CT, to listen to featured presenter, David Gardiner, Executive Director of the national Combined Heat and Power Alliance (CHPA) as he provides an overview of the IRA and Federal ITC related to current and future CHP project installations. In the meantime, to learn more about the IRA and ITC, view the CHPA’s recently published FAQ titled “CHP and WHP in the Inflation Reduction Act.”

Review/discussion of case studies where Array Industries provided the design, integration, manufacturing, and site supervision/installation of new and retrofit CHP Balance of Plant solutions with limited available space. Key points:

1) Power density increase

2) Environmental regulations compliance

3) Exhaust ducting integration with existing equipment 

4) Existing building integrity kept intact

With the new $4.00 per kg federal incentive from the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) for green hydrogen, this technology now deserves serious attention. Hydrogen production and use as a fuel will be a growing component of our industry’s clean energy transition. This presentation explains and compares three options to produce hydrogen with zero, or near zero, CO 2 emissions. We will look at and compare:

Green Hydrogen from solar PV electrical hydrolysis of water

Blue Hydrogen using steam methane reforming of natural gas (with carbon capture)

Turquoise Hydrogen, or methane pyrolysis, which produces solid carbon and no CO 2 gas

CAPEX, OPEX, and carbon balance will also be covered, including the potential tax credit implications under the IRA.

CHP systems are well known as the most energy efficient for simultaneous electricity and thermal energy production. Maximizing the annual output of such systems enhances decarbonizing the electric grid by minimizing the need to operate high-carbon emitting systems to meet the grid demand. Gas turbines are the prime mover of choice for large-capacity CHP systems. All gas turbines are rated at 59oF and lose as much as 30% of capacity during hot weather. Turbine inlet cooling maximizes the capacity and efficiency of gas turbines during hot weather and thus, maximizes the potential of CHP systems for decarbonizing the electric grid.
