So, you want to generate your own power, for emergencies and/or for everyday use. For the sake of your design/budget/schedule, learn what the utility might expect from you — and what you should expect from it.
WSP/Parsons Brinckerhoff has acquired substantially all the assets of CRC Engineering, P.C. (CRC), a New York-based firm specializing in design, field services, and commissioning for central utility plants and cogeneration systems.
Regulatory, competitive, and environmental
pressures are pushing data centers away from the traditional power sources.
Here, the author surveys the landscape and reviews one comparative study
involving CCP cogeneration and conventional electricity sources. Reducing the
carbon footprint and lessening reliance on a sometimes unreliable grid are just
two reasons to look into CCP.
