We explored the potential use of combined heat and power (CHP) on the main campus of Worcester Polytechnic Institute. CHP units have the potential to reduce electricity and heating costs, while simultaneously lowering greenhouse gas emissions. We interviewed stakeholders to determine requirements, carried out a payback analysis, and estimated carbon waste savings. The team concluded that implementing a 2 megawatt reciprocating CHP unit would be best for campus.
