No longer limited to industrial and manufacturing applications, high-efficiency combined heat and power (CHP) systems have been making their way into more project types through smaller micro-CHP units. Are residential applications next up?
Join us at 2 p.m. Eastern on Thursday, Nov. 19, 2020, to get a first look at Enginuity’s exciting new Private Home Generation system. The concept behind the micro-CHP system is simple: The unit replaces a traditional furnace or boiler and water heater with a single appliance that produces both hot water and electricity. Because the units run on propane and can start without power from the grid, they offer resilience and energy independence in the event of a power outage without the need for a standby generator. With an operating efficiency of over 90 percent — compared with the 27.6 percent operating efficiency of a coal-fired power plant when including transmission and distribution losses — the micro-CHP unit can reduce a home’s CO2 emissions by nearly 50 percent, or 4.2 tons of CO2 per year.
The Propane Presents Technology Series, sponsored by the Propane Education & Research Council, highlights equipment manufacturers and early adopters of cutting-edge products powered by propane. You’ll learn the messaging that resonates most with your clients while gaining a deeper understanding of emerging technologies so you can see how they impact your projects and your business.
