Join E2Tech and the University of Maine for an overview of CHP technology, renewable fuel options, and support of small scale CHP Projects.
Combined heat and power (CHP) is defined as the use of on-site power generation to provide both electricity and heat at the same time. This process is more fuel efficient than a conventional power plant because otherwise-wasted heat can be used in a productive manner such as space heating, or cooling.
The University of Maine has been designated as one of ten US Department of Energy (DOE) CHP centers dedicated to promotion, technical support, and deployment of cost-effective and highly efficient CHP technologies throughout the nation (UMaine News).
Get updated on the latest developments in Combined Heat & Power and learn the potential of the technology, with our expert panel.
