Mexico Combined Heat and Power Market
Mexican energy reform, which is overseeing the breakup of state utility CFE as oil giant Pemex, is likely to provide more opportunities for CHP.CFE has announced it will offer $2.8 billion in natural gas and electricity project contracts by the end of 2014 in a bid to bolster the Mexican economy. Part of the plans include two natural gas pipelines along the US/Mexico border and two combined-cycle power plants as Mexico looks to leverage robust U.S. natural gas assets to lower electricity rates.
Combined heat and power (CHP) is an efficient and clean approach to generating electric power and useful thermal energy from a single fuel source. Instead of purchasing electricity from the distribution grid and burning fuel in an on-site furnace or boiler to produce thermal energy, an industrial or commercial facility can use CHP to provide both energy services in one energy-efficient step.
While CHP has been in use in some form or another for more than 100 years, it remains an underutilized resource today. Nevertheless, the outlook for increased use of CHP is bright €” policymakers at the federal and state level are beginning to recognize the potential benefits of CHP and the role it could play in providing clean, reliable, cost-effective energy services to industry and businesses.
CHP is being looked at as a productive investment by some companies facing significant costs to upgrade outdated coal and oil-fired boilers. In addition, CHP can provide a cost-effective source of highly-efficient new generating capacity. Finally, the economics of CHP are improving as a result of the changing outlook in the long-term supply and price of North American natural gas €” a preferred fuel for many CHP applications.
As an efficiency technology, CHP helps makes businesses more competitive by lowering their energy costs, reducing demand on the electricity delivery system, reducing strain on the electric grid, and reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) and other harmful emissions. Already used by many industrial facilities and a growing number of commercial and institutional entities, CHP is a commercially available clean energy resource that is immediately deployable, and that can help address current and future global energy needs.
