Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Fact Sheet Series: Hospitals
Hospitals and healthcare systems are at the front line of responding to natural disasters, reducing mortality rates, and assisting with public health crises. It is imperative that these facilities operate nonstop. Healthcare organizations must improve the resilience of their facilities, including power delivery systems. One approach is the installation of combined heat and power (CHP) systems. Well suited to meet both resilience requirements and energy demands, CHP can provide electricity, hot water, and space heating and cooling during both normal operations and major outage events.
