In past articles we have discussed two very exciting movements within the energy industry: distributed power generation (DG) and combined heat and power (CHP) systems. We think it’s fair to say that together DG and CHP can completely revolutionize the energy sector. That is of course a lofty statement to make, but we believe that several key factors have come together to create the perfect environment for the rise of DG and CHP systems. What Are DG and CHP Systems? If you missed our earlier articles on distributed power generation (DG) and combined heat and power (CHP) systems, there are […]

In past articles we have discussed the advantages of distributed power generation (DG) systems, how they are beneficial to the environment, and what types of companies can most benefit from them. In today’s article we will turn our attention to the primary fuel source for distributed power generation systems: natural gas. There are several important reasons why natural gas is the ideal fuel source and why it is powering the DG revolution including the following. Natural Gas Is Abundant and Affordable One of the primary reasons that natural gas is such a great fuel source for distributed power generation systems […]

For decades businesses were essentially at the mercy of utility plants and their transmission grids to receive crucial power for business operations. While for the most part this has proven to be okay, it nevertheless left companies with no control over price increases and subject to devastating shortfalls if there was a power disruption. In recent years, however, all of that is changing and companies are gaining much greater power autonomy. The reason for these advancements: Distributed power generation. What Is Distributed Power Generation? In a conventional power model, energy is generated in massive quantities at a large-scale power plant […]

Just about all industrial facilities, plants, mills, and manufacturing facilities have a few things in common. First, they all want to find ways to reduce costs and increase efficiency. Second, they require a large amount of power to run. Third, they very likely also require a great deal of heat energy for various industrial processes and heating. Fortunately, there is a solution to meet all of these needs while simultaneously reducing greenhouse gas emissions and pollution: Combined Heat and Power Systems. What Are Combined Heat and Power Systems? Combined heat and power systems, also known simply as CHP systems,or sometimes […]

In today’s economy companies big and small, across all different industries, are eager to do everything possible to cut costs and increase profits. Often this means finding a new, more cost efficient way to do a familiar task or process. Other times the answer may lie in adapting a revolutionary new approach. Regardless engineering firms are at the forefront, helping companies make their bottom lines more robust. What follows are several key ways that better engineering saves companies money. Improved Product Quality Product defects can ravage a company’s image within their industry and may also result in expensive recalls and […]
