CHP can serve a vital role in a university’s environmental and energy strategy. CHP units in a university can help to reduce energy consumption and cost. Colleges and universities essentially operate as self-contained small cities, providing huge amounts of energy to its campuses, in increasing amounts, all day, every day. Benefits of cogeneration units include reduced energy costs, enhanced service reliability, and a smaller carbon footprint. For college campuses, cogeneration provides another advantage: a lessened dependence on the surrounding electric grid. In the event of blackouts or brownouts, a campus with a CHP unit is able to meet its own requirements for electric power and reduce costs. At Martin Energy Group, we can provide units as small as 50kW and as large as 9mW thus providing reliability, lower electrical costs, and a smaller carbon footprint created by the university.
