What is Trigeneration?

Trigeneration is the simultaneous production of three forms of energy - typically, Cooling, Heating and Power - from only one fuel input. 

Stated another way, our trigeneration power plants produce three different types of energy for the price of one.

Trigeneration energy systems now exceed the efficiency of central power plants by almost 300% as overall trigeneration system efficiency is about 90%. Typical "central" power plants, that do not need the heat generated from the combustion and power generation process, are only about 33% efficient. 

Basically, a trigeneration power plant is a cogeneration power plant that has added absorption chillers for producing chilled water from the heat that would have been wasted from a cogeneration power plant.

In addition to the economic benefits and advantages, trigeneration plants reduce our dependence on foreign energy supplies and help our environment by dramatically reducing greenhouse gas emissions such as carbon dioxide - when compared to typical power plants. Trigeneration has been hailed the "hat-trick of the energy industry" with system efficiencies approaching and exceeding 90%.

Trigeneration plants are very energy efficient, conserve natural resources and reduce fuel consumption as the system operates at such high efficiencies. Cogeneration and trigeneration power plants are about 90% efficient and approximately 300% more efficient than "central power plants" that average 27% to 40% efficiency. When fueled with renewable fuel, cogeneration and trigeneration plants are carbon neutral, producing no greenhouse gas emissions and the optimum solution for clients seeking to reduce their energy expenses and greenhouse gas emissions.

Trigeneration Chart
Trigeneration's "Super-Efficiency" compared
with other competing technologies
As you can see, there is No Competition for Trigeneration!


Our trigeneration power plants are the ideal onsite power and energy solution for customers that include:  Data Centers, Hospitals, Universities, Airports, Central Plants, Colleges & Universities, Dairies, Server Farms, District Heating & Cooling Plants, Food Processing Plants, Golf/Country Clubs, Government Buildings, Grocery Stores, Hotels, Manufacturing Plants, Nursing Homes, Office Buildings / Campuses, Radio Stations, Refrigerated Warehouses, Resorts, Restaurants, Schools, Server Farms, Shopping Centers, Supermarkets, Television Stations, Theatres and Military Bases.

At about 86% to 93% net system efficiency, our trigeneration power plants are about 300% more efficient at providing energy than your current electric utility. That's because the typical electric utility's power plants are only about 33% efficient - they waste 2/3 of the fuel in generating electricity in the enormous amount of waste heat energy that they exhaust through their smokestacks.

Trigeneration is defined as the simultaneous production of three energies: Cooling, Heating and Power.  Our trigeneration  energy systems use the same amount of fuel in producing three energies that would normally only produce just one type of energy. This means our customers that have our trigeneration power plants have significantly lower energy expenses, and a lower carbon footprint.

Waste Heat Recovery in Cogeneration and 
Trigeneration
power and energy systems

In most cogeneration and trigeneration power and energy systems, the exhaust gas from the electric generation equipment is ducted to a heat exchanger to recover the thermal energy in the gas. These heat exchangers are air-to-water heat exchangers, where the exhaust gas flows over some form of tube and fin heat exchange surface and the heat from the exhaust gas is transferred to make hot water or steam. The hot water or steam is then used to provide hot water or steam heating and/or to operate thermally activated equipment, such as an absorption chiller for cooling or a desiccant dehumidifer for dehumidification.

Many of the waste heat recovery technologies used in building co/trigeneration systems require hot water, some at moderate pressures of 15 to 150 psig. In the cases where additional steam or pressurized hot water is needed, it may be necessary to provide supplemental heat to the exhaust gas with a duct burner.

In some applications air-to-air heat exchangers can be used. In other instances, if the emissions from the generation equipment are low enough, such as is with many of the microturbine technologies, the hot exhaust gases can be mixed with make-up air and vented directly into the heating system for building heating.

In the majority of installations, a flapper damper or "diverter" is employed to vary flow across the heat transfer surfaces of the heat exchanger to maintain a specific design temperature of the hot water or steam generation rate.

Typical Waste Heat Recovery Installation


In some
cogeneration and trigeneration designs, the exhaust gases can be used to activate a thermal wheel or a desiccant dehumidifier. Thermal wheels use the exhaust gas to heat a wheel with a medium that absorbs the heat and then transfers the heat when the wheel is rotated into the incoming airflow.

A professional engineer should be involved in designing and sizing of the Waste Heat Recovery section. For a proper and economical operation, the design of the heat recovery section involves consideration of many related factors, such as the thermal capacity of the exhaust gases, the exhaust flow rate, the sizing and type of heat exchanger, and the desired parameters over a various range of operating conditions of the cogeneration or trigeneration system all of which need to be considered for proper and economical operation.


The Market and Potential for Waste Heat Recovery technologies and solutions

There are more than 500,000 smokestacks in the U.S. that are "wasting" heat, an untapped resource that can be converted to energy with Waste Heat Recovery technologies.

About 10% of these 500,000 smokestacks represent about 75% of the available wasted heat which has a stack gas exit temperature above 500 degrees F. which could generate approximately 50,000 megawatts of electricity annually and an annual market of over $75 billion in gross revenues before tax incentives and greenhouse gas emissions credits.

Waste Heat Recovery technologies represent the least cost solution which provides the greatest return on investment, than any other possible green energy technology or "carbon free energy" opportunity!

Carbon Dioxide Emissions
Since the year 1750

 
##
Total US CO2 since 1750 (cubic feet)


The carbon clock tracks total carbon dioxide emissions in metric tons since 1750.

Since 1750, humans have emitted over 5 trillion pounds of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Roughly half of this has ended up in the oceans where it is beginning to damage the coral reefs. The other half is still in the atmosphere and causing global warming. Each pound of CO2 takes up as much space as a 500 pound person.

The formula (which should be good for a year or two) is:
C(t) = 2.58 1012 + 1240t, where t is seconds since the start of 2007.

C is tonnes (metric tons) of carbon dioxide emissions.
2205 x C gives pounds of carbon dioxide emissions.

That comes to over 43 billion tons/year or over 86 trillion pounds/year.

Carbon dioxide (2) = 1 carbon atom with 2 oxygen atoms.
Carbon has relative weight 12 and Oxygen 16.
So it takes only 12 pounds of carbon to make 12+16+16 = 44 pounds of CO2.

Press Release

Power, Efficiency and Resiliency (POWER) Act


Washington, D.C - U.S. Representatives Allyson Y. Schwartz (PA-13), Chris Gibson (NY-19), Joseph Crowley (NY-14), Peter King (NY-2), and Richard Neal (MA-01) introduced the bipartisan Power, Efficiency and Resiliency (POWER) Act today. The legislation modifies tax incentives for two energy efficient technologies, combined heat and power (CHP) and waste heat to power (WHP). 

CHP systems generate both electricity and heat from a single fuel source. According to a study from the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, CHP could be used to produce up to 20 percent of U.S. electrical capacity by 2030. This level of deployment would generate $234 billion in new investment, create nearly one million new highly skilled jobs, dramatically reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions, and improve the competitiveness of U.S. manufacturing by reducing energy costs. Additionally, by generating power where it is used, CHP systems ensure that critical facilities-such as hospitals, police stations and water treatment plants-are able to continue operating when the electrical grid goes down.

WHP systems recover the waste heat produced by industrial processes and use it to generate electricity. An Environmental Protection Agency Study estimated that WHP could be used to produce 10 gigawatts of emissions free electricity (enough to power 10 million homes), reduce costs to industry by $3 billion, and create 160,000 jobs.

"The Power Act incentivizes investment in energy efficient systems that protect our environment, encourage economic growth, and ensure that hospitals and other critical facilities are able to continue operating in emergencies, even when the electric grid goes down" said Schwartz. "That is why this legislation has the support of Democrats and Republicans, as well as a diverse coalition of business, labor, energy and environmental organizations." 

"This common-sense legislation will encourage investment in technologies that reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, put people to work, and make sustainable energy systems more accessible to consumers," said Congressman Chris Gibson. "These systems are especially important to hospitals and emergency services in rural areas, where there's a greater risk of power outages due to severe weather and limited infrastructure."

"In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, even those areas least affected by the storm lost power for over a week -- with the exception of homes and businesses powered by CHP systems, such as in Co-op City in the Bronx. But it's not only the reliability of CHP systems that makes them attractive, it is also the fact that there are significant environmental benefits as well," said Rep. Joe Crowley (D-Queens, the Bronx). "I'm proud to join my colleagues in introducing bipartisan legislation that will help to strengthen critical infrastructure and generate economic growth."

The POWER Act reduces the initial capital cost of deploying these energy efficient projects by providing CHP and WHP with tax incentives on par with those available for renewable energy. Specifically, the legislation:

1. Increases the investment tax credit (ITC) for combined heat and power from 10 percent to 30 percent

Increasing the credit to 30 percent will place CHP on par with other energy sources that benefit from the ITC, including solar and fuel cells.

2. Applies the ITC to waste heat to power

Waste heat to power systems are currently excluded from the ITC.

3. Applies the ITC to the first 25 megawatts (MW)Power Eff of CHP projects-up from 15 MW-and eliminates the 50 MW project size cap

Expanding the ITC will incentivize additional projects, increasing the impact of the ITC and resulting benefits 

4. Extends the Investment Tax Credit for an additional two years, through 2018. 

In order to be eligible for the ITC, projects must be operation before the credit expires-December 31, 2016 under current law. A two year extension will provide a reasonable time frame for equipment purchase, installation, and permitting.

About us:

The founder of the Renewable Energy Institute (REI) was first involved in Net Zero Energy buildings and Solar Trigeneration sm energy system in 2001 - 2002.  This started with family-owned real estate developments in Northern and Southern California.  This interest was accelerated when REI's founder was introduced to the President of a solar company in Los Angeles and their client, the Audubon Nature Center at Deb's Park (Los Angeles) that was planning to build a new 5,000 sf office and conference center. Except, the new building for the Audubon Nature Center was about 1/2 mile from the end of the power lines and a very costly extension of the power lines to their new facility forced them to consider a solar solution. When the Audubon Nature Center's new 5,000 sf office and conference center was completed in 2003, the facility not only featured the Solar Trigeneration sm energy system - they were awarded one of the first Platinum LEED Awards by the USGBC - and the powerlines were still 1/2 mile away! To this day, 100% of the power and energy for the Audubon Nature Center's building is supplied by the Solar Trigeneration sm energy system - whether at 12 noon, or 12 midnite.  (The Audubon's facility also includes a battery energy storage system for back-up power generated by the Rooftop PV panels as well as a thermal energy storage system that stores the excess hot water generated by the evacuated tube collectors).

These early projects led to more client inquiries and engagements with real estate developers, architects and building owners in Southern California, Louisiana and Texas and the advent of a growing Net Zero Energy industry along with Solar Cogeneration sm & Solar Trigeneration sm energy systems. This culminated in a family-owned 200 (Net Zero Energy) home real estate development in Desert Hot Springs which has been approved but not yet constructed. 

During this time, the REI's Founder became a volunteer and Advisor to the University of Texas' Solar Decathlon Competition. He coordinated the donation of the same solar thermal system used at the Audubon Nature Center's facility in Los Angeles, for UT's entry in the 2002 Solar Decathlon Competition in Washington, D.C.  UT's entry in the Solar Decathlon Competition placed 1st in the domestic hot water competition that year (2002) and 4th overall, out of 20 universities that had entered. 

In 2006, after Hurricane Kattrina devastated New Orleans, the REI was formed and several of the REI's board members and a Professor from the University of Texas School of Architecture formed a design team to enter the Brad Pitt/Global Green Rebuild New Orleans Competition.  Our entry also focused on sustainable building solutions and materials as well as the Net Zero Energy concepts, incorporating once again, a Solar Trigeneration sm energy system. 

Today, the REI "Flagship" has chartered the Renewable Energy Institute in Florida, with discussions to open REI state chapters in Arizona, California, Hawaii, Minnesota and Oregon. 

The REI supports greater use of Net Zero Energy systems by architects, builders, homeowners and owners of commercial buildings. This includes "upgrading" homes and commercial buildings to Net Zero Energy.  The REI provides Net Zero Energy; advertising, business development, conferences, e-commerce, education, marketing, online marketing, public relations, renewable energy, sales and strategic marketing solutions for architects, builders, cities, colleges, HVAC contractors, Net Zero Energy developers, real estate developers and universities.
