As Worcester Polytechnic Institute aims towards an energy efficient campus, the use of cogeneration technologies can reduce carbon emissions and utility provided electricity by using turbine exhaust for thermal usages and to generate clean, onsite electrical power, respectively. Through means of case studies, personal interviews, and billing assessments, the feasibility of a microturbine, a cogeneration technology, on the campus is determined. A microturbine when implemented correctly is a feasible energy source to increase Worcester Polytechnic Institute’s sustainability on campus.
