What is CHP?
CHP systems are a highly efficient form of distributed generation, typically designed to serve a single large building, campus or group of facilities, including microgrids. During normal operation, CHP operates at high fuel efficiencies by simultaneously generating electricity and recovering heat to provide steam, hot water or chilled water.
