ASHRAE Journal November 2022 Edition Publishes feature Article on The Role of CHP in Reducing Carbon Emissions

ASHRAE Journal November 2022 Edition Publishes feature Article on The Role of CHP in Reducing Carbon Emissions

ASHRAE
Nov 21, 2022
The importance of reducing carbon has become paramount in efforts to reduce global climate
change. Some suggest the key to immediate action on climate change is to replace all fossil-fueled
technologies with electric ones, while simultaneously moving the electrical grid to renewable sources
such as solar and wind power. The policy push to electrify in the built environment and throughout
industry has led some to state that combined heat and power (CHP) does not have a future.

CHP, also known as cogeneration, is an integrated set of technologies for the simultaneous on-site production of electricity and heat. On-site generation of electrical and thermal energy with CHP results in emissions reductions today primarily by displacing fossil fuel emissions from central electricity generation, eliminating transmission and distribution (T&D) losses and avoiding the use of an on-site boiler (to meet thermal needs). CHP systems are also widely applied for reliability, resilience and electric grid support and have also long used alternative fuels such as biomass and wood, biogas and landfill gas, municipal and process wastes, waste gas streams and hydrogen mixtures.

The importance of natural gas rate design during the energy transition

The importance of natural gas rate design during the energy transition

ICF International
Oct 27, 2022
With the impacts of climate change becoming more apparent every day, emission reduction goals and policies are gaining momentum. Twenty-four states plus the District of Columbia have adopted aggressive greenhouse gas reduction goals to address climate change, and more than 80% utilities have set carbon reduction goals. The scale of the U.S. economy’s dependence on natural gas, which supplies 35% of U.S. total energy consumption, means that any pathway to achieve established emission reduction goals needs to address emissions associated with the consumption of natural gas. Many studies of decarbonization pathways have shown that the electrification of some portion of natural gas demand is required to meet GHG reduction goals. Some parties even propose the approach of electrifying all natural gas demands. At first glance, full electrification paired with low-carbon electricity seems to be an attractive solution to decarbonization. ...

IEA 2022 World Energy Outlook: Sees 2050 Role for Efficient natural gas, Hydrogen and CCUS

IEA 2022 World Energy Outlook: Sees 2050 Role for Efficient natural gas, Hydrogen and CCUS

IEA
Oct 27, 2022
Oil, natural gas and coal accounted for around four‐fifths of total energy supply worldwide in 2021. In the NZE Scenario, this share falls to around two‐thirds in 2030 and less than one‐fifth in 2050, a proportion of which is used with CCUS and for non‐energy uses. Between 2021 and 2050, coal demand declines by 90%, oil declines by around 80%, and natural gas declines by more than 70%.

Just under 100 EJ of fossil fuels are consumed in 2050 in the NZE Scenario. Just over 40% of this, including 65% of natural gas and 90% of coal, is consumed in facilities equipped with CCUS. A further 40% – including more than 70% of the oil still being used – is consumed in applications where the carbon is embodied in the product and there are no direct CO2 emissions (examples include chemical feedstocks, lubricants, paraffin waxes and asphalt).
The remaining 20% is used in sectors where clean energy technologies are least feasible and cost effective: for example, oil still accounts for around 20% of fuel use in aviation in 2050 in the NZE Scenario. ...
