Hourly Energy Usage Simulation Techniques For Evaluating Digester Gas CHP System Costs and Savings
Some noteworthy findings are the greatly superior return on investment, compared to CHP alternatives, of heating-only systems in plants with significant facility heating loads, and the general need for monetary incentives, both capital and operating, to lower economic hurdles to cogeneration implementation.
