Introduction A Detailed Engineering Study for Combined Heat & Power (CHP) was recently completed by Efficiency Engineering at a world class hotel located in Niagara Falls, Ontario. The purpose of the study, funded by the Ontario Government under the Process and Systems Program, was to determine the feasibility of implementing a CHP system in order

In this brief discussion we take a quick look at the differences between designing and operating a dedicated domestic hot water (DHW) boiler plant and a combined heat and hot water (CHHW) plant producing the domestic hot water indirectly via a heat exchanger.  In drawing this comparison we need to assume the storage, circulation, and

Efficiency Engineering recently completed a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) feasibility study under the Process & Systems program offered by the government of Ontario. The purpose of the study was to show the building owner how to conserve energy costs by installing a behind-the-meter CHP system. The study was performed at a 110 unit apartment

The New Technical and Financial Realities Traditional Electricity and Natural Gas Supply Most buildings in Ontario are supplied with both Electricity and Natural Gas.  Typically, the electricity supplied to a building is produced from varous sources, including hydro, natural gas, coal, nuclear and renewables.  In most instances, fossil fuels (natural gas and coal) are used
