Combined Heat & Power for Energy Efficiency and Resiliency
Time, reliability, and cost-savings are chief drivers in global business decisions. Solutions to energy price volatility, energy security and resiliency, emergency preparedness, sustainability compliance, base optimization, and cyber threats are becoming more important to governmental, public, and commercial customers. Combined Heat and Power (CHP) as a distributed energy resource plays a key role in providing energy security through energy efficiency (EE), reliability, and resiliency for multiple sectors and end-users. In situations similar to what were experienced after hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Superstorm Sandy, the challenges of loss of primary power are mitigated by CHP systems as they provide base load and continued operation for critical facilities like hospitals, shelters, public services, and other critical infrastructure systems. Our presentation will cover many lessons learned through our extensive energy program management experience in Maryland and other areas.
• CHP Basics – Understand why CHP delivers affordable energy savings, reduces Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions, and adds resiliency to your facility
• Types of CHP Systems, and where they work best
• CHP Economics: How much to build, how much to run, and how to afford it
• Resiliency – CHP in a Microgrid
• CHP as a Non-Wires Resource
• Lessons Learned from Projects Past

Project Engineering Manager
Roger Huggins is a senior engineer at Lockheed Martin Energy’s office in Rockville, Maryland, and presently manages implementation of the CHP Incentive Program for Pepco and Delmarva Power. Mr. Huggins has more than 25 years of experience in energy efficiency project development and implementation, and has previously developed Microgrid and CHP projects that have included steam, hot water, and direct heat recovery; biomass, biogas, and natural gas fuel sources; and both reciprocating engines and steam turbines. His experience in energy efficiency and knowledge of building systems helps to ensure that projects will integrate well into existing facilities, providing benefits and service for their entire useful life.
