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
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
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
'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.
Each arched Watly unit is fitted with photovoltaic solar panels that generate heat and solar power. Water is pumped into the tank and made drinkable through a process called vapor compression distillation, which uses solar thermal energy to vaporize water and separate it from contaminants ranging from sea salt to poisons.Read more
Danish-based company, Sondex, has developed a process that uses heat exchangers to recycle excess or waste energy generated in an industrial process and then redirect this energy to power a separate thermal distillation plant.Read more
International Wastewater Systems (IWS) has developed, manufactured and installed what it is calling the SHARC system that can heat and cool buildings as well as provide hot water. The heat exchange technology conducts simple and direct heat exchange from untreated wastewater.Read more
Ford is implementing several heat recovery projects from paint oven exhaust stacks, air recirculation systems, and in paint spray booths by incorporating heat pump technology. “These heat recovery projects currently underway in several of our European facilities will deliver around 150 gigawatt-hours of energy savings per year from 2015 onward, with an estimated savings of 3.75 million Euros at typical electricity rates.”Read more
The patented SCE system utilizes conventional state-of-the-art technology in a unique method to create the best possible answer to power generation issues - a high efficiency power generation system with heat recovery that is split between the end-user and the grid. This patented concept of splitting the electric load enables the engine to run at constant load and speed, thus maintaining the engine at its maximum efficiency level. These systems can reduce electric bills by up to 20 percent.

When I opened the door to the Yumenoshima Tropical Greenhouse Dome in Koto Ward, Tokyo, I was met by warm air flowing out from inside. The huge glassed-in dome, whose interior resembles a tropical forest, houses about 800 species of tropical plants.
The thermal source for the greenhouse, which is heated with a warm-water pipe circulation system, is heat generated during garbage incineration at a nearby waste disposal center.Read more
Great article discussing the challenges, benefits of characteristics of datacenter waste heat utilization projects. The article includes some good examples of datacenters making use of their waste heat.
BUILDING work on a groundbreaking £6.2million energy scheme which will see waste heat from the Northern tube line piped into homes will start this month.
As first revealed in the Tribune last year, the project – the first of its kind in Europe – will harness heat from the underground and help keep energy bills in 500 council homes on the King Square estate in Finsbury up to 10 per cent cheaper.Read more
