Packaged Combined Heat and Power E-Catalog
The Packaged Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Catalog (eCatalog) is a public-private partnership designed to increase deployment of CHP in commercial, institutional, and multifamily buildings and manufacturing plants. The eCatalog functions as an open source, web-based system that hosts U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)-recognized Packaged CHP Systems. The core of the eCatalog, now available as a version 1 release, are CHP Packagers, who commit to provide pre-engineered and tested Packaged CHP Systems that meet or exceed DOE performance requirements, and CHP Solution Providers, who commit to provide responsible installation, commissioning, maintenance, and service of recognized Packaged CHP Systems and serve as a single point of responsibility for project execution, service, and warranties. Customer Engagement Partners (including state and local jurisdictions and utilities) support CHP deployment by linking their CHP outreach programs, support resources, and incentive programs to the eCatalog.
After entering the facility zip code, users can screen results based on key items such as system size (kW), prime mover (reciprocating engines, microturbines, gas turbines, or fuel cells), heat recovery (hot water, steam, cooling, or a combination), and other system attributes including fuel type, grid connection type, and physical size constraints. The eCatalog is focused on Packaged CHP Systems less than 10 MW (individual system capacity) and will be routinely updated to add new packaged CHP systems, Packagers, and Solution Providers.More Less
