This guide contains information on the design, selection, installation and operation of CHP in buildings. The guide will be of interest to building services engineers designing new buildings, refurbishing/upgrading existing buildings or in developing a site energy strategy. It may also be useful to building operators and energy managers intending to specify CHP or those running existing plant. The guide explains what CHP is, discusses the available technologies and their application in buildings. It then focuses on project appraisal as the feasibility study underpins the future economics of the plant. A series of case studies is shown throughout the guide covering a range of technologies, applications and financing options.
