Reducing Energy Costs with Waste-Heat-to-Power (Webinar)

March 14, 2017 -- 10:00-11:00 am MST
Sponsor(s): SWEEP and US DOE, CHP Technical Assistance Partnerships
Many industrial facilities in Colorado have high-temperature waste streams that could be used to generate electricity through waste-heat-to-power, also known as recycled energy. These facilities include natural gas processing, natural gas pipeline compressor stations, refineries, and chemical and cement companies.

In this free webinar, we will discuss:
Recycled energy technologies, applications, and challenges;
Financing, leasing, and ownership options; and
Free technical assistance available to evaluate the opportunity at your facility.
