National Combined Heat & Power And Waste Heat To Power Conference Focuses On Industrial Competitiveness, Energy Security And Reliability

HOUSTON, July 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Industrial competitiveness, recent federal initiatives and various state policies have spurred great interest in combined heat and power (CHP) and waste heat to power (WHP).  The Texas Combined Heat and Power Initiative (TXCHPI), The Heat is Power Association (HiP), and World Alliance for Decentralized Energy (WADE) are joining forces to convene CHP2013 and WHP2013 to address these interests.  The conference and trade show will be held October 7-9 at the Crowne Plaza in Houston, Texas.

In its fourth year, this conference brings business and energy leaders together with industry experts, project developers, policy specialists and end-users to examine new technologies, market opportunities and installation case studies of CHP and WHP. A call for presentations has been issued for the wide-ranging agenda, and the conference also includes a vibrant exhibit hall. 

CHP systems, also known as cogeneration, reduce fuel costs associated with on-site power generation using natural gas or biogas by taking full advantage of waste heat recovery to significantly increase energy efficiency. On-site generation with CHP provides energy security during times of grid strain and extreme weather conditions. By providing secure reliable power, CHP technologies are gaining favor by hospitals, universities, data centers, manufacturers, and other mission critical facilities. CHP systems also help reduce the enormous amount of water consumed by power plants during the production of electricity.

WHP systems enhance industrial efficiency by capturing waste heat from industrial processes, converting it to power, and returning the power back into the process or exporting it for others to use.  Energy intensive industries including oil and gas refineries, compressor stations along pipelines, chemical facilities, paper plants, steel mills, cement plants and glass manufacturers employ WHP systems to generate power with base-load waste heat which is produced on-site whenever the operation is running. WHP systems, which require no combustion and produce no emissions, improve overall industrial energy efficiency and competitiveness and are considered renewable energy systems in over 15 states, making WHP a natural and integral part of all clean energy and jobs discussions.
