The Next Horizon for CHP – Value Streams and Market-Based Compensation for End-Users
June 14, 2018 • 1pm (ET)
This is the second webinar focusing on the role of CHP in utility programs. Join us as we present three case studies that highlight CHP installations that tap non-traditional value streams to achieve real-world savings.
Case Study 1
How CHP can Help States and Utilities Meet Grid Modernization Objectives
When developing strategies for grid modernization or other resource planning activities, utilities can gain value from CHP in more than one way. One common way utilities have gained value from CHP is through energy efficiency programs that incentivize and count energy savings from CHP systems located at customer sites to meet state requirements. With the need for more grid services and emphasis on broader adoption of DERs, utilities are gaining value from CHP in new ways, by investing in owning CHP systems on the generation side, or by procuring CHP as a distribution system resource.
Case Study 2
CHP as a reliability resource/ and surviving the hurricane – Florida Public Utilities and the Eight Flags CHP Project, Fernandina Beach, FL
How utilities are collaborating with key customers to enhance resiliency and efficiency through developing CHP as a base load resource.
Case Study 3
CHP as a TDSM Solution for Con Edison’s Brooklyn-Queens Demand Management Non-Wires Solution Program – Matt Lockwood, ERS
Con Edison’s Brooklyn-Queens Demand Management (BQDM) Program was a first-in-its-class non-wires program that aims to achieve 52 MW of grid load reduction in the Brownsville 1 & 2 substation area of Brooklyn and Queens. Non-wires programs replace or defer traditional distribution infrastructure investments with targeted demand-side load reduction. Among a suite of potential solutions, Con Edison partnered with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority to incentivize the installation of Combined Heat and Power systems. This unique partnership provided Con Edison with reliable load reduction on peak days at a competitive price. Following Con Edison’s success, all NYS JU’s have developed NWS programs in the BQDM model.
