New cogen installation on Yawkey roof will save $1.5 million a year and can heat and power the hospital's inpatient units for months if the electric grid goes downRead More
Two combined heat and power plants provided by Rolls-royce have gone into operation in Belgium. Rolls Royce CHP technology
Since the beginning of the year, the CHP plants have been supplying energy to a new tomato greenhouse operated by Maxburg BVBA in Meer in Belgium.Read More
Apple is building a new data center in Denmark, and it has some interesting ideas on how to power the data center with renewable energy, while also giving back to the community.
Excess heat generated by the data center will be captured and returned to the local district's heating system, which will warm up homes in the community.Read More

A new engine converts waste hot water from industrial equipment into electricity.
NATURE WORLD NEWS - Exergyn, a startup based in Dublin, Ireland, is planning to run the first industrial trials of the new energy-efficient engine by next year, New Scientist reports. The engine generates electricity from heated water that is left over from other equipment. According to co-founder and chief executive Alan Healy, waste hot water (low-grade waste heat or LGWH) from industrial processes amounts to about twice the energy in Saudi Arabia's oil and gas output per year.Read More
Combined heat and power (CHP) systems have long been used to reduce the overall energy intensity of industrial systems. There are two types of combined heat and power, depending on whether the system produces power first, then heat, or heat first, then power.Read More
Newcastle United Football Club will hope to produce some more energetic performances both on and off the pitch next season, having installed a new emissions-cutting combined heat and power system (CHP) at its St James' Park stadium.Read More
Like the rest of CUC’s generators, the two new units will produce heat exhaust gases, however unlike the existing generators whereby these exhaust gases would be wasted and funneled out industrial grade smoke stacks into the atmosphere, CUC will now capture these gases which in turn will be converted into additional energy.Read More
The Army unveiled the $40 million Combined Heat and Power Plant, or CHP, near the Edgewood gate’s entrance off of Hoadley Road, during a ceremony Tuesday morning, as which ceremonial chains were cut to open the plant.Read More
US waste-heat-to-power products maker Alphabet Energy said on Wednesday it has raised USD 23.5 million (EUR 21m) from a Series C financing round led by a new investor, oil and gas sector player Schlumberger (NYSE:SLB).Read More
A young startup is making flexible sheets of metal covered in tiny antennas that can turn heat into electricity.
Sound like the stuff of science fiction? The company, RedWave Energy, is working on the unusual idea that could, if successfully manufactured, help turn waste heat from power plants and factories into energy.Read More
Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems has announced the unveiling of a new clean-energy system that will simultaneously eliminate environmental waste and bring electricity to a number of cities in Utah, including Logan.Read More
Republic Cement also operates a Waste Heat Recovery system in its Teresa Plant in Rizal, which further improves energy efficiency by channeling excess heat from the plant’s production processes to generate electricity. The WHR supplies nearly 30% of the plant’s energy requirements, and reduces carbon dioxide emissions by approximately 12 000 tpy.Read More
'The whole idea of renewables versus non renewables has become a focus - the thing for me that Europe has got to do is be very strongly focused in delivering an energy system for all of our energy users in a way that is affordable.
'Fifty per cent of the energy lost in our system is heat from thermo-generation - we are throwing away as much heat as we are using. It's bad for the economy and climate.'Read More
The utility rates in New York already make CHP, also known as cogeneration, a compelling solution for energy users looking to save moneyRead More
A new £1bn development in the London Docklands area will supply low-carbon energy to power 20,000 of the capital's residents through the adoption of combined heat and power (CHP) technology.
This month a transparent tube topped by a turbine will be installed along the side of a Minneapolis grain silo in an effort to create electricity from wasted heat.
The 7.5-foot diameter tube – called the Energy Column – captures ground level air that rises to power a 3 kilowatt (kW) turbine.Read More
One might think that the steam engine is an outdated technology that had its heyday centuries ago, but in fact steam is once again a hot topic with vehicle manufacturers.Read More
Global drinks firm Diageo will generate 2 million cubic metres of biogas a year from its whiskey factory in Scotland thanks to a new anaerobic digestion plant.Read More
