Event Details

Learn how CHP and DG can contribute to energy security and where this has been successful.  Attend the workshop and road-mapping event coordinated with the US DOE and the NJBPU.

The worldwide market for power generation is undergoing a tremendous transformation due to the abundant supply of natural gas in this country.  This is resulting in intense competition, as well as price increases and capacity shortages.  At the same time new, cost-effective distributed generation/combined heat and power technologies are increasingly commercially available. Finally, near-term reductions in greenhouse gas emissions are necessary and CHP promises to be a key measure for fighting climate change.  Current trends favor DG/CHP technologies for some key applications.

Distributed generation produces energy through smaller sources than traditional utility-scale generation. Distributed generation can lower environmental impact and improve security of supply. What are the advantages and disadvantages of increasing distributed generation vs. building more centralized generation?  What is the largest obstacle that distributed generation faces right now?  



NGIC is sponsoring the conference to provide a forum for small-scale power generation.  Participants include project developers, equipment manufacturers, utilities, end-users, trade associations, and financial institutions.  Cogeneration feasibility studies and market assessments have intuitively and objectively pointed in this direction.  U.S. companies are actively assessing and acting on distributed generation/CHP business opportunities with security, environmental and risk mitigation benefits.  Let’s explore the market for distributed generation/CHP technologies as well as develop effective business strategies for energy security independence and reliability!

Natural Gas Industries Coalition (NGIC)

The Natural Gas Industry Coaltion(NGIC) promoteindustry issues related to the supply, transmission, storage, distribution and use of natural gas. The organization works to identify, develop, and implement value-added programs on behalf of members through govenment relations, marketing and advocacy. NGIC collects and disseminates industry-related information, and conducts conferences and programs. The coalition maintains strong relationships with other partners industry trade associations with similar interest and serves as a credible voice to support the industry. NGIC engages in grass roots and grass tops efforts to support the industry and provides a platform to present objective academic or scientific analysis.  Overall, NGIC collaborates with trade associations in the utility and energy industries to reinforce the position of the natural gas industry.
