Integrating renewable resources into a hybrid distributed generation system

Under a grant from the California Energy Commission’s Public Interest Energy Research (PIER) program and with support from SoCal Gas, GTI is developing and demonstrating a fuel-flexible hybrid-generation CHP system that can use natural gas and biogas produced by anaerobic digesters at wastewater treatment plants and landfills in distributed generation applications to enable technically viable and cost-competitive integration. The novel system integrates a partial oxidation gas turbine with a reciprocating internal combustion engine to produce efficient and reliable thermal and electric energy for on-site use.
