Chapter 2: Summary and Highlights
The commercial combined heat and power (CHP) market is increasing modestly with an expected compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.2% from 2017 through 2022. The market is segmented on the basis of end-use sector, fuel, technology and region. The major factors driving the CHP market across the globe include the demand for energy conservation, cohesive government policies, high efficiency and technological advancement. High initial cost may affect the market growth, however, rising environmental concern, rising demand for energy and favorable government policies are expected to boost the market in the near future. Cost effectiveness and capability to increase overall operational efficiency are major motivators of the commercial CHP market.

It is estimated that around two-thirds of the energy used to generate electricity is wasted in the form of heat discharged to the atmosphere and there is considerable energy loss in the distribution of electricity to the end users. On the other hand, CHP has the potential to provide efficiencies of around 60% to 80% compared with 40% to 50% for conventional technologies. As a result, there is imminent demand for CHP technologies across the globe. The on-site electricity generation effectively captures the wasted heat to provide useful thermal energy such as steam or hot water that can be used for space heating, cooling, industrial processes and domestic hot water.7

CHP is widely adopted by major hospitals, schools, university campuses, hotels, nursing homes, office buildings and apartment complexes to save on energy costs, increase energy reliability and cut carbon emissions.

In 2012, commercial buildings and institutional applicants represented 13% of CHP systems in the U.S. In 2016, the U.S. government set a target to produce 40 gigawatts (GW) of new, cost-effective CHP by 2020, which is estimated to provide manufacturers and companies savings of $10 billion each year in energy costs. Capital investment in plants and facilities is expected to rise in the near future. Additionally, the CHP market will enable the reduction of carbon pollution by 150 million metric tons (Mt), which is estimated to be the emissions of more than 25 million cars. It has ecofriendly attributes and may reduce carbon emissions by an estimated 25% to 30% as compared with conventional systems.

The end-use application sector will grow at a modest rate of 5.2% during the forecast period with a major contribution from industrial and commercial sectors. The commercial and district energy end-user sector is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of 6.6% during the forecast period. District energy refers to the combination of electricity, steam, heating, or cooling at a central plant and with a distribution of energy to a network of nearby buildings. This encourages managers of individual buildings to get connected to the network in order to avoid the need to install and maintain their own boilers, furnaces, chillers, or air conditioners, thus saving on capital and maintenance costs.

The CHP systems are available for all type of the fuels and applications. CHP application and fueling are greatly depend on the country and the energy producer. North America and China uses coal in industrial applications while France uses gas as its main fuel for CHP. In Russia, a higher share of electricity generation is with CHP. Other major countries are also adopting CHP for electricity generation to reduce carbon emissions. The CHP systems are preferred by consumers in all the geographies as the consumers pay less energy costs with increased energy efficiency from this system. American companies and manufacturers could potentially save around $10 billion by 2020 with the use of CHP systems.

The key companies profiled in the report include Aegis Energy Services Inc., Alstom, BDR Thermea Group, Clearedge Power, Caterpillar Dantherm Power, Elite Energy Systems LLC, E.ON Group, Ener-G Group, General Electric Energy, Qnergy, Mitsubishi Power Systems Americas Inc., Siemens Energy and so on. Commercial CHP companies are constantly focusing on product launches, expansion and partnerships to stay competitive.

The increasing energy demands in the APAC region is expected to offer the most opportunity for the CHP market. APAC is expected to contribute the highest to the global commercial CHP market followed by Europe. APAC is also an emerging market due to rising demand for natural sources of energy, favorable government policies and rising adoption of CHP technology in major hospitals, schools and industries. The government policies on energy conservation and green energy in the European region are encouraging the CHP market in the region. The European Union as well as individual countries have set targets to reduce carbon emissions by minimizing the use of fossil fuel. The increase in energy efficiency and use of alternative fuels are effective solutions to achieve the targets.
