Cleaning Up the Dirty Grid with CHP

Posted by Dalkia Aegis on Jan 10

If you’re conscious of energy efficiency and conservation measures, you likely know that certain sources are much “cleaner” than others. For example, burning oil does a lot more harm to the environment than harnessing wind or nuclear energy. You may also assume that the electricity you get from the traditional grid is always generated the same way, which couldn’t be further from the truth. In this blog, we’ll explain the process of “peaking” and the ways you can use combined heat and power (CHP) to reduce your reliance on the dirty grid while you improve your bottom line.

Countering Power Plant Energy Loss with CHP

Posted by Dalkia Aegis on Dec 20

Flipping on a light switch takes less than a second—but have you ever thought about what it took for that energy to make its way to you? Electricity is something many of us take for granted, but when that energy is created by a traditional central power plant and sent over a network, some of that power is lost before it can reach its destination. In this blog, we will uncover the facts behind the energy loss that occurs when power plants transmit and distribute electricity, and why an onsite combined heat and power (CHP) system is more energy efficient.

Over the past few months, the price of energy sources such as natural gas, coal and oil has skyrocketed, taking electricity costs along for the ride. Your facility may already be feeling the effects—but as the cold winter approaches, the added costs could become even worse. Luckily, implementing a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system can help you reduce some of the impact of increased energy prices through improved operational efficiency.

CHP: Part of the Green Energy Solution

Posted by Dalkia Aegis on Nov 3

When considering green energy, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Most people might say renewable sources such as wind and solar; not a system that runs on natural gas. But that’s what makes Combined Heat and Power (CHP) unique—despite its source, the U.S. Department of Energy recognizes it as part of the green energy solution that can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and contribute to your facility’s sustainability goals. In this blog, we’ll explain how.

The Power of Partnership: a Climate Friendly Collaboration

Posted by Dalkia Aegis on Oct 6

In 2021, we are celebrating the power of partnership, more specifically our ongoing partnership with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This year marks the 30th anniversary of the founding of Green Lights, the agency’s first ever Climate Partnership Program. In the three decades since, various EPA partnership programs have helped save Americans $500 billion and prevent more than 6 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions. We are proud of this partnership, and we’re equally proud of the cost savings and energy-efficient equipment it helps us pass on to our customers.
