GreenGen can assess, engineer, and implement onsite power generation, helping you wade through the many choices to identify ROI-based alternatives.
GreenGen's Engineering Team evaluates the potential for innovative energy technologies utilizing renewable power sources such as solar, wind, and geothermal, as well as onsite generation (CHP). GreenGen enables clients to benefit from efficient and reliable power sources that shield them from volatile energy markets while reducing their carbon emissions.
GreenGen develops the most efficient renewable energy projects possible – from site selection to asset management, we provide a broad range of services along the entire value chain.
CHP / Co-Generation
Our CHP designs make use of natural gas effectively to create electricity and thermal energy in a cost-effective manner. CHP systems utilize the power generation waste heat to satisfy the building's heat demands.
CHP systems typically consist of commercially available gas-fired reciprocating engines or turbine-based technologies primarily producing electricity with waste heat creating thermal energy on a secondary basis. A third benefit is reduced electrical peak demand during the summer. With a minimum 60% annual efficiency and reduced GHG emissions, CHP is often an excellent option for facilities to reduce both operating costs and GHG. With black start capability, CHP systems also provide excellent energy security and grid redundancy.
Additionally, GreenGen helps secure the strong federal and local incentives for CHP that are offered in many markets.
Renewable energy commercialization involves the deployment of three generations of renewable energy technologies dating back more than 100 years. First-generation technologies, which are already mature and economically competitive, include biomass, hydroelectricity, geothermal power and heat. Second-generation technologies are market-ready and are being deployed at the present time; they include solar heating, photovoltaics, wind power, solar thermal power stations, and modern forms of bioenergy. Third-generation technologies are currently in development.
