Combined Heat and Power (CHP) offers many advantages of energy efficiency and resilience. Recognizing this, the US Department of Energy (DOE) provides funding to assist public and private entities to implement CHP at facilities of many types. The DOE Technical Assistance Partnerships (TAP) program promotes CHP technology solutions for the industrial and manufacturing sector, critical infrastructure, institutions, commercial facilities, and utilities seeking to reap the many benefits of CHP. HARC is home to two regional CHP TAPs: the Southcentral Region, serving Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Arizona; and the Upper-West Region, encompassing Montana, South Dakota, North Dakota, Wyoming, Utah, and Colorado.

Webinars are an important and powerful way make information available to engineers, facility managers, contractors, and others interested in learning more about CHP and how it can be applied in various sectors. The Southcentral and Upper-West CHP-TAPs host no-cost webinars focusing on applications for various industries. Our September 13th webinar focuses on applications in Oil and Gas.

In case you missed our recent webinar on the hospitality industry, the archive is available below.

CHP for the Modern Oilfield
On-Site Power Generation and Thermal Energy for Oilfield Operations
Thursday, September 13, 2018 Noon to 1:00 PM CDT
The Oilfield is evolving to exploit the many advantages of electrification, automation and other technological advances to reduce costs, enhance safety, and improve efficiency. The electrified oilfield presents enormous opportunity to realize value from on-site power generation using locally-produced natural gas. Combined Heat and Power (CHP) provides both electric power and thermal energy (heat) from a single on-site source, such as a turbine or reciprocating engine. The recovered waste heat is used to provide additional services to production facilities, such as heat for thermal water treatment as well as oil & gas processing.

CHP in the Hospitality Industry
Tuesday, July 24, 2018 10:00 to 11:00 AM CDT

Combined Heat and Power (Cogeneration) is a great opportunity to reduce energy costs, save money and improve the resilience of the hospitality industry. During natural disaster events and major power outages, it is vital that the hospitality industry can maintain safe operations for its guests. The Department of Energy’s Upper West CHP Technical Assistance Partnerships is leading a webinar on the opportunities and applications for CHP in the hospitality sector. Please join us to learn about these CHP benefits, federally funded engineering services, case studies and opportunities for your facility.
