Industry Overview:

What’s not to like about co-generation? It simultaneously generates electricity and heat or cooling, a welcome example of efficiency as it uses less fuel, saves money and impacts the environment less than other energy producers. The combined heat-and-power (CHP) model is especially good for areas plagued by poor air quality.

Co-generation has been used for many years in mills, plants and refineries, but major fine-tuning and new approaches could expand the market to many more universities, hospitals, hotels and commercial buildings – even to entire districts. New technology and creative thinking are needed to shave costs, vital for this capital-intensive industry to demonstrate its value to centralized utilities and government regulators.

Ropella is a veteran of recruiting in scientific, technological and allied fields; we can find the bright thinkers and technical leaders to make co-generation a much larger part of the energy equation.
