Commercial combustion and CHP systems

Daniel Ciolkosz, Jim Babcock

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Wood heat for individual homes (i.e., wood stoves and pellet stoves) is widely recognized and understood in the Northeast USA. Commercial-scale wood heat and CHP (combined heat and power), however, is not nearly as well known or as widely used. Nonetheless, it is a significant opportunity that continues to experience growth in the region. Commercial-scale wood heat or CHP systems are designed to burn wood, producing heat or heat + electrical power for medium sized facilities, such as schools, office buildings, hospitals, and manufacturing plants.
