Using Combined Heat and Power (CHP) for Efficient Resilience

This 2019 Energy Exchange recorded session explores combined heat and power (CHP) on-site generation. Installation, campus, and facility resilience is often anchored by CHP on-site generation. Having an efficient, prime-power source of electrical and thermal energy as the basis for a resilient microgrid helps agencies ensure their missions. Over time, CHP systems can also be improved and optimized as internal and external factors change. Speakers discuss CHP systems and how they have been integrated into their buildings' electrical and thermal energy systems.

Smart Labs for Today's Energy Reality

This 2019 Energy Exchange recorded session explores how a typical laboratory is three to four times more energy intensive than an average commercial building and can account for up to 70% of a campus' energy footprint, making laboratories a key focal area for energy and carbon management strategies. Additionally, labs' primary functions require consistent availability of energy and water.
