10 Facts about Heat Pumps

Heat pump technology is efficient and mature. Capacities range from 20kW to 100kW for residential applications and even higher capacities for commercial applications. Industrial and district heating heat pumps reach capacities of several MW. Operating the unit when surplus electricity is available and storing that surplus energy in the form of heat provides significant demand response capacity to…

CHP: 3 primary criteria for successfull cogeneration projects in power plants

On world average only 9% of electricity production comes from cogeneration or CHP. However, some countries are well above. For instance, Denmark has more than 60%.

Cogeneration can not only deliver economic benefits but also environmental ones (avoiding CO2 emissions). If that is the case, why are not more countries reaching the level of Denmark?

This paper describes the three main criteria…
