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.

Combined Heat and Power Systems Can Weather the Storm

Posted by Dalkia Aegis on Jun 28

In the last six years, three severe weather events—Superstorm Sandy and Hurricanes Harvey and Maria—caused widespread damage and left millions of residents without power during and after the storms for a long duration of time. When Hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico on September 16, 2017, it was the second-largest recorded power outage in the world. But even smaller storms that produced 4 tornadoes in Connectict in May 2018 left many businesses without power for a week.
