February Webinar: CEA and Combined Heat and Power – Perfect Together
February 1 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST
Controlled Environment Agriculture is an energy intensive industry that can achieve many societal goals, though it requires significant energy resources for lighting, heating, humidifying/dehumidifying and cooling. Combined Heat and Power (CHP) has long been heavily leveraged by Europeans to integrate CEA with the energy grid in a much more sustainable and environmentally sensitive way. With increasing energy costs and emissions reduction mandates and resilience needs growing, CEA and CHP combine to optimize food production with energy production, resulting in increased efficiency, lower emissions, and improved facilities, as well as grid resilience. This presentation will provide an overview of how CHP integrates with CEA and will discuss the CHP project development process, including cost, funding sources, and permitting.
