ALBANY, New York, April 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research ( http://www.transparencymarketresearch.com) " Combined Heat And Power (CHP) Installation Market by Product (Large-scale CHP, Micro-CHP), by Application (Residential, Commercial & Industrial), Technology (Combined Cycle, Combustion/Gas, Steam, Fuel Cell etc)-Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2012 - 2018," global CHP demand was 452.9 GW in 2011 and is expected to reach 1,219.1 GW in 2018, growing at a CAGR of 15.3% from 2012 to 2018. In terms of revenue, the CHP installation market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.7% from 2012 to 2018. Browse the full report at http://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/combined-heat-and-power.html CHP fuels estimated and analyzed in this study include natural gas, coal, biomass, and others (wood, oil and process waste heat). Abundant supply of natural gas at competitive prices, a favorable regulatory scenario and increasing application scope are expected to drive CHP systems demand over the next five years. However, CHP installation is a highly capital intensive process carrying significant risk value, which is expected to act as a barrier to market growth in the near future. The interconnection standards between utilities and cogeneration systems vary regionally. This makes it difficult for CHP technology companies to manufacture components and makes cogeneration system installation more complex and costly. Industrial applications dominated the CHP systems market and accounted for 67.8% of the overall demand in 2011. Commercial applications followed industrial in terms of volume and are expected to grow at a CAGR of 15.9% from 2012 to 2018.
