Cogeneration, its Uses and Economic Analysis


*Please note, for all certification preparation training programs, an additional fee is due when submitting your certification application to take the exam.

About this Program

Cogeneration is defined as the production of electricity by utilizing the waste energy (heat) from an existing prime mover, such as an engine, microturbine, large gas turbine. Alternative on-site energy sources can also be used, such as the catalytic cat cracker in an oil refinery. The electricity generated can be used to drive building and facility systems that produce hot water, chilled water, or hot air. Cogeneration systems, therefore, lower the demand for purchased electricity.

This program brings you up to speed on current cogeneration systems and technologies. It highlights how and where to look for uses of cogeneration and provides examples of projects and the economic benefits. The instructor demonstrates how to measure economic benefits using a proprietary Economic Analysis Program, which attendees gain at the end of the course for their personal use..

Learning Objectives & Take-Aways:

  • Understand different cogeneration systems and technologies.
  • Understand where to look for cogeneration applications within buildings and facilities.
  • Understand how to use an Economic Analysis Tool to calculate and measure the benefits of a particular project.
