"Emissions From Distributed Generation."

Neil D. Strachan and Alex Farrell.

Abstract:
This study takes a new approach to evaluating emissions from DG-CHP applications, by calculating emissions for the total energy supply system including both heat and power and comparing various DG-based and central station-based systems systematically across a range of HPR values. The overall approach is to first characterize typical DG technologies and applications in use as baseload DG today or likely to be used in the future. Then, a simulation model is developed and parameterized so that costs and emissions can be determined. The sensitivity of the results to greater levels of emission controls is also examined. Economic and policy implications are considered.
