CHP technologies will continue to evolve and progress, driving development and adoption
The benefits of combined heat and power (CHP) generally are well established, and the technology is recognized as having great potential to improve large industrial process efficiencies while contributing to grid resilience.
Conventional electricity generation systems waste a great deal of energy through the discharge of heat into the atmosphere, and even more is wasted when electricity is distributed to distant industrial and commercial end users. CHP, on the other hand, makes productive use of the waste heat that is generated as part of the thermal processes.
The game has changed and utilities must address capital allocation in a different way
The electric utility industry is in the middle of a transformation that has no precedent. Historically speaking, delivering electricity was relatively simple; utilities generated power and provided it to customers over a one-way delivery system. Companies requested, and utility regulators granted, periodic rate hikes to cover infrastructure upgrades while providing a reasonable rate of return on that investment.
Utilities are adapting to the new energy grid under threat of significant economic challenge
To effectively map out the current and future states of power delivery, it’s imperative to discuss what the landscape looked like in the past. Understanding the evolution of any industry typically requires a healthy dose of historical context, and making sense of today’s energy grid is no exception.
EVs are speeding ahead, even as questions persist over charging infrastructure
Separated by decades of progress and technology’s endless march, it’s easy to think electric vehicles share little heritage with their internal combustion forebears. But even as they bookend the automotive spectrum, today’s EVs are much like the first automobiles in one important respect: When the first cars were made, they had an outsized dependency on infrastructure. Without a robust system of roads (let alone highways), what was the incentive to buy?
