GLRPPR Sector Resource: Opportunities for Combined Heat and Power in Data Centers

Title:
Opportunities for Combined Heat and Power in Data Centers

Abstract:
This report analyzes the opportunities for CHP technologies to assist primary power in making the data center more cost-effective and energy efficient. Broader application of CHP will lower the demand for electricity from central stations and reduce the pressure on electric transmission and distribution infrastructure.
