Abstract:

Discussions are included of the four broad interrelated categories of factors to consider when evaluating candidate approaches to cogeneration at a site. The categories are technical, economicfinancial, legislativeregulatory, and institutional. The inability to resolve difficulties in any area may obviate implementation of cogeneration. Generalized performance curves are presented for cogeneration systems utilizing commercially available steam turbines, diesels, or combustion turbines with heat recovery. A summary is given of federal energy and environmental legislation and regulations currently in effect which impact cogeneration systems. The nature of institutional constraints on implementing cogeneration is also discussed. The potential for cooperative ownershipoperation options with utility companies or third party investors is described. The economics of cogeneration is detailed. Finally, steps are listed for proceeding through the categories of factors toward implementation of cogeneration. Author
