Energy Studies

Energy costs continue to increase and pro-active manufacturing and other industrial facilities are finding alternative methods to meet their energy needs. CoGeneration, also known as combined heat and power (CHP), is the concurrent generation of electricity and useful heat in a process that is generally much more energy-efficient than the separate generation of electricity and useful heat.
For the same output of useful energy, CoGen uses far less fuel than traditional separate heat and power production. For example, electric utilities utilize fuel to generate power at approximately a 28% efficiency rate. Cogeneration Projects are in the 93% efficiency range for fuel usage. This energy reduction typically translates into significant energy cost savings.  
FE can perform your initial Energy Study to determine if a cogeneration plant can decrease your energy costs.
