GTI also continues its work on distributed, on-site generation in combined heat and power applications. ​Researchers focus on technologies that help industrial and commercial facilities meet stringent emissions standards. We are working especially closely with the U.S. Department of Energy, California Energy Commission and local utilities on the development and demonstration of new solutions for the industrial and onsite power sectors.
