Distributed Generation and Cooling, Heating & Power Integration Facility
The use of affordable distributed energy resources (DER) is a core strategy in reengineering the nation's energy generation and delivery systems. The Distributed Generation and Cooling, Heating and Power Integration Facility at Oak Ridge National Laboratory is used to do research for industry, academia, other national labs, and the federal government to develop cost-effective technologies that can reduce overall energy use, reduce peak power demand, ensure better power reliability and quality, and reduce emissions.
The scope of our capabilities covers the full spectrum of theoretical analyses and evaluations through experimental testing and evaluation, and project management. Our technical capabilities include the following areas:
- CHP Integration Testing
- DER/CHP Analysis
- Electricity T&D
- End-Use Systems Integration
- Fuels Testing
- Integrated Energy Systems
- Power Systems
- Thermally-Activated Technologies
