Diversity of fuel and applications makes the market dynamic, report concludes
Enabling facilities to achieve efficiencies of up to 85 percent while simultaneously generating electricity and heat, combined heat and power (CHP) is a proven strategy for reducing total energy use in the industrial sector. CHP is one of the few options in the portfolio of energy alternatives that combine environmental benefits with economic viability and improved competitiveness. Click to tweet: According to a recent report from Navigant Research, the worldwide capacity of industrial combined heat and power systems will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 30 percent a year from 2014 to 2023.
“Combined heat and power represents slightly less than 6 percent of global installed electricity generating capacity, but it is one of the most mature distributed generation segments,” says Mackinnon Lawrence, research director with Navigant Research. “Although growth in the industrial CHP sector has stagnated in the United States and Russia, the two leading national markets, in recent years, this technology is expected to reach nearly $30 billion in annual market value by 2023.”
The industrial CHP market encompasses a broad range of applications, according to the report, including resource extraction, such as upstream oil and gas and mining, processing applications, such as refineries and food and beverage facilities, and manufacturing facilities such as pulp and paper mills, steel mills, and packaging plants. The diversity in fuel use, technology, and end users makes the industrial CHP market dynamic across all world regions.
The report, “Industrial Combined Heat and Power”, analyzes the global market potential for industrial CHP systems for a range of industrial applications – including refineries, pulp and paper mills, and food processing facilities – using technologies such as turbines, internal combustion engines, fuel cells, and Organic Rankine Cycle engines. The report includes in-depth assessments of 10 leading countries for the installation of industrial CHP systems, and provides an outlook for increased fuel switching to natural gas. Global market forecasts for installed capacity and revenue, segmented by region, country, and scenario, extend through 2023. The report also examines the key market drivers and barriers related to industrial CHP and the main industry players engaged in this market. An Executive Summary of the report is available for free download on the Navigant Research website.
