Combined Heat and Power Capacity Additions for Commercial Buildings Will More than Double by 2022

December 17, 2012 – Boulder, CO Sometimes referred to as “cogeneration,” combined heat and power (CHP) is the sequential or simultaneous generation of multiple forms of useful energy (usually mechanical and thermal) in a single, integrated system.  These systems can help reduce the cost of heating, cooling, or providing power to a wide variety of commercial building types.  According to a recent report from Pike Research, a part of Navigant’s Energy Practice, annual installations of commercial CHP systems will reach nearly 39 gigawatts (GW) in 2012.  That number will more than double by 2022, the study concludes, reaching 79.5 GW.

“The use of CHP can reduce a building’s energy demand by up to 40 percent when compared to the separate production of heat and power,” says senior research analyst Mackinnon Lawrence.  “Although the high upfront cost of CHP systems and the challenge of finding suitable uses for the heat generated are key barriers, relatively short payback periods have allowed many major companies to invest in these energy saving technologies.”

CHP represents a new paradigm for commercial building applications.  As an integrated system, CHP systems include a suite of prime mover technologies such as gas turbines, microturbines, fuel cells, and others paired with software and component hardware.  Since CHP deployments are not dependent on a single breakthrough technology, they are widely available for a range of applications, but intrinsically difficult to market to potential end users, architects, and engineers.

The report, “Combined Heat and Power for Commercial Buildings”, analyzes the global market potential for commercial CHP systems for a range of building applications – such as hospitals, universities, hotels, casinos, airports, and others – using technologies including internal combustion engines, fuel cells, Stirling engines, and Organic Rankine Cycle.  The study includes in-depth assessments of leading countries for the manufacture and adoption of commercial CHP systems, the technologies utilized in such systems, and the key industry players engaged in this market.  Worldwide market forecasts, segmented by region, are provided through 2022 for system shipments, installed capacity, average installation capacity size, and revenue.  An Executive Summary of the report is available for free download on the Pike Research website.
