Register today to learn how CHP can support energy savings and resilience goals.

Wastewater treatment plants everywhere are increasingly concerned with power resilience for continuity of operations during outages that can occur with storm events or other causes. The drive improve efficiency and reduce cost is ever-present. Combined Heat and Power (CHP) offers both power resilience for confident emergency preparedness and energy efficiency essential for reducing energy costs. CHP, also known as cogeneration, 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 wastewater facilities, such as heat for digesters and sludge drying.

On March 4, 2020 at 10 am CST, join the US DOE's Southcentral CHP Technical Assistance Partnership to learn how CHP can support energy savings and resilience goals at your WWTP. We will also cover best practices and lessons learned for the CHP plant located at the Southside Wastewater Treatment Plan in Dallas, TX.
