CHP: Cleaner. Less Expensive. Reliable.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Combined Heat and Power Partnership has awarded GEM Energy its 2016 Certificate of Avoided GHG Emissions. The certificate is achieved for the amount of carbon emissions avoided last year – expressed in metric tons and the equivalent annual electricity use of U.S. homes – by the CHP project data submitted on GEM Energy installations. This estimate is calculated by comparing the emissions from each CHP system to the total emissions from conventional separate heat and power (i.e. grid electricity and on-site thermal generation). The certificate also includes the cumulative carbon emissions avoided by these installations.
