Combined Heat and Power Technical Assistance Partnership

Combined Heat and Power (CHP), also known as cogeneration, produces both electricity and thermal energy on-site.  This replaces or supplements electricity provided from the local utility and fuel burned in an on-site boiler or furnace.

Working with the U.S. Department of Energy and North Carolina State University, Tennessee Tech can provide technical assistance at no cost to determine the feasibility of implementing a CHP system in commercial buildings, institutions and manufacturing and municipal facilities.
