Fuels for CHP

CHP is not a fuel-specific technology. Even with price volatility in natural gas markets in recent years, natural gas is still the predominant fuel for CHP systems. While natural gas will continue to be an important fuel, the ability of CHP systems to operate on diverse fuels - including coal, oil, biomass, wood, and waste fuels such as landfill and digester gases makes them key to developing a balanced and sustainable energy portfolio.
