Market Potential for Advanced Thermally Activated BCHP in Five National Account Sectors, May 2003

Potential distributed generation (DG) and combined heat and power (CHP) applications in the United States cover a broad spectrum of market segments, from nursing homes requiring a few hundred kilowatts (kW) of power and an economical hot water source to large chemicals plants requiring several hundred megawatts (MW) of power and thousands of pounds per hour of high-temperature steam. This report assesses the applicability of innovative thermally activated technologies in integrated system configurations in the five target national account segments: healthcare (hospitals and nursing homes), supermarkets, lodging (hotels and motels), restaurants, and “big box” retail.
