DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global On-Grid Combined Heat and Power Market Outlook to 2020 - Market Analysis by Geography, End User, Application, Technology, Competitive Landscape, Key Company Information - Growth Trends and Forecasts" report to their offering.
Combined heat and power (CHP) is an efficient and clean approach to generating electric power and useful thermal energy from a single fuel source. Instead of purchasing electricity from the distribution grid and burning fuel in an on-site furnace or boiler to produce thermal energy, an industrial or commercial facility can use CHP to provide both energy services in one energy-efficient step.
While CHP has been in use in some form or another for more than 100 years, it remains an underutilized resource today. Nevertheless, the outlook for increased use of CHP is bright as policymakers at the federal and state level are beginning to recognize the potential benefits of CHP and the role it could play in providing clean, reliable, cost-effective energy services to industry and businesses.
CHP is being looked at as a productive investment by some companies facing significant costs to upgrade outdated coal and oil-fired boilers. In addition, CHP can provide a cost-effective source of highly-efficient new generating capacity. Finally, the economics of CHP are improving as a result of the changing outlook in the long-term supply and price of North American natural gas, a preferred fuel for many CHP applications.
