Sustainable Strategies
Combined Heat and Power

CHP includes gas turbines, gas and diesel engines, and fuel cells.

This Labs21 Best Practice Guide describes how to implement this strategy:
- On-site power systems for laboratories

See this FEMP CHP resource page for an introduction, and this How-to Guide for CHP for detailed information

These Labs21 Case Studies implement this strategy:
- EPA NVFEL uses a fuel cell (pg. 4)

See these Labs21 Conference Presentations for more information on the following:
- Matching distributed generation with building thermal systems
- Case study on the costs and benefits of CHP for a laboratory building
