CHP for you and me? Those of us who have studied combined heat and power, know that it was at the heart of many large corporate buildings in UK, Europe, and the USA. Perhaps, Old ideas will be new again.
One of the keys to practical combined heat and power plants is to have a use for waste heat whether it be summer,winter, or fall. Converting low temperature waste heat into other forms of energy is likely key.. conversion of same to lights and cooling for a building could be ideal uses.
Here’s an article worth the read, perhaps we envision Green houses, where the right spectrum of light is generated off a manifold that delivers waste heat to the LEDs. The following article might discuss a very promising breakthrough.
Let’s pray that Government doesn’t fund the effort to death, and siphon off the life’s blood as it has wind and solar..
All the best,
