A one-paragraph, simple overview of the basic CHP approach reads like this: A building’s (or campus’) system uses fuel to make its own electricity, and then it applies the waste heat from that process toward its HVAC needs.
It’s a way to reduce wasted heat and increase industrial efficiency
December 19, 2016
Combined heat and power (CHP) systems are being used by a wide range of applications to reduce the overall energy intensity of industrial systems. In some cases, such as industrial furnaces, efficiency improvements resulting from waste heat recovery can improve energy efficiency 10-50 percent.
Emerging trends have a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry
December 15, 2016
The global heat exchanger market is expected to reach an estimated $21.3 billion by 2022, and it is forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.1 percent from 2017 to 2022, according to a report published by Lucintel. The major drivers of growth for this market are a rise in HVACR deployments, rapid industrialization, and stringent environmental regulations.

Compared to Mechanical Chillers, They Can Substantially Reduce Operating Costs
May 4, 2015
Absorption chillers use heat, instead of mechanical energy, to provide cooling. The mechanical vapor compressor is replaced by a thermal compressor that consists of an absorber, a generator, a pump, and a throttling device.
