This webinar will explore the opportunities of absorption chillers that run off of the waste heat from combined heat and power systems (CHP), and how they can be a benefit to utility energy efficiency programs.
Absorption chillers are traditionally fueled by natural gas, but they have an even more successful history running off the waste heat from CHP systems. These systems not only shave summer peak loads through efficient cooling but also through the CHP generation itself. The flexibility of these systems provides a key advantage: the waste heat from CHP can be used to provide year-round cooling, year-round heating, both at the same time, or a season rotation of the two.
In this discussion, Gearoid Foley, one of the country's leading experts on absorption chilling technology, will give a user-friendly primer on absorption chiller/CHP systems. He will also discuss their energy savings potential, challenges, and how utilities can identify and assist good projects. Gearoid Foley is a senior technical advisor of the Mid-Atlantic Clean Energy Application Center and President of Integrated CHP Systems Corporation.
