Abstract

China relies on electricity generated from large, centralized power plants to meet the demands of its unprecedented economic development; these plants exhaust the country’s resources and pollute its environment. Distributed power plants provide another option. Based on technical research on the potential reliability and carbon emissions of various plant designs as well as surveys of Chinese students’ attitudes toward the alternative infrastructure, we created a series of recommendations for supplying power to China’s capital, Beijing. The most feasible power option involves constructing a collection of combined cooling, heating, and power (CCHP) distributed generation systems.
