Co-generation can be used to lower a building’s overall energy costs, to achieve improved NABERS, Green Star or LEED ratings, and to demonstrate a commitment to ESD policy by offsetting high carbon emission from coal fired generation with less carbon intensive natural gas generated power. Tri-generation systems may also be…
