World Cogeneration day gives Northeast-Western Energy Systems the chance to celebrate our people and our passion. Our dedicated team integrates, engineers and maintains cogeneration projects throughout the United States all year around, even through unprecedented times. Our team recently helped a customer overcome gas cleaning issues and got (3) Jenbacher Type 4 gas gensets commissioned during the pandemic. This is one of many projects our team supported during the COVID crisis. Thank you, World Cogeneration Day, for allowing us to recognize key people who drive our business!
Clarke Energy and sister company Co-Energy America are pleased to announce our support of World Cogeneration Day, September 4th 2020 and highlighting key international cogeneration projects. Cogeneration or combined heat and power technology (CHP) plays an important role in providing efficient localised power and supporting carbon emissions reduction. Gas engine CHP plants can use renewable gas such as biogas, biomethaneor hydrogen or low carbon gases such as natural gas at high efficiency and close to the site of use. Generating electricity and heat locally means lower losses and better use of the fuel, translating to lower carbon emissions.
Hurst Boilers and Power Resource Group celebrate front-line people that keep building energy systems for the essential agricultural, food, and industrial sectors. Moreover, as society grapples with energy markets during these uncertain times, we have compelling reasons to supplement the conventional fuels used for centuries with the multiple alternatives in abundance around us. Biomass-to-energy conversion uses heat and oxygen to create energy in the form of steam or hot water that is then used as electricity and thermal energy for co-located industrial facilities, such as the 165,000 MW/hours of electricity per year and heating energy at the Carolina Poultry Project.

Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre (TBRHSC) is an acute care facility serving Thunder Bay and northwestern Ontario, Canada. Caterpillar CHP helps Thunder Bay Medical Centre save hundreds of thousands of dollars a year on energy costs, while simultaneously protecting the health and welfare of all constituents. https://bit.ly/2NIgKLt The facility has earned a worldwide reputation for its award-winning, innovative design. “Cogeneration is a good fit for a big building such as ours,” says Allan Korol, Manager of Physical Plant Maintenance and Operations.“This facility is full of patients 24 hours a day, seven days a week and 365 days of the year. So, the need for energy is continuous", says Allan Korol. See Case Study here:
Milliken seeks innovative solutions for energy efficiency in its operations. In 2019, construction of a $25+ million combined heat and power facility began in Blacksburg, South Carolina. Combined heating and power enables them to reduce energy consumption by capturing wasted heat and increasing energy reliability by generating electricity on site—with the aim of reducing total greenhouse gas emissions by 10% and reducing waste by 5%. Solar Turbines Company provided their Titan™ 130 gas turbine with two-shafts for compressor and mechanical drive applications for high thermal efficiency. "Combined Heating and Power (CHP) is an efficient, reliable, and resilient energy system and is promoted by both the U.S. Department of Energy and Environmental Protection Agency. The CHP system allows Milliken to eliminate coal as a fuel source and significantly reduce air pollutant emissions." Barry Beck, Vice President, IC Thomasson Associates.

It is an honour for us at Energen to support World Cogeneration Day 2020 to celebrate the inspirational commitment of the people involved in the CHP power sector, who kept the lights on during the Covid-19 pandemic and the power running. We are proud to say that our CHP schemes have been ensuring on-site generation of heat and power throughout the epidemic in Slovenia. Our O&M team has been performing necessary activities to protect most vulnerable institutions like hospitals and retirement homes from avoiding the risk of power disruption and heavy losses related to power cuts. Even in times of pandemic, Energen employees were available for our customers 24/7. Once again our staff proved that they are no doubt the most important asset of our company!
