CCHP for Colorado State University: towards carbon neutrality by 2030 thanks to trigeneration/CCHP from renewable sources
To become carbon neutral by 2030, Colorado State University (CSU) is working on a CCHP (Combined Cooling, Heat, and Power) project. An integrated power generation system that combines electricity generation, heating and cooling in a single unit. This integrated approach enables primary energy to be used more efficiently, reducing waste and improving the overall system efficiency. Moreover, CSU is considering powering the plant with 100% renewable sources such as hydrogen, in order to completely eliminate CO2 emissions.
