CHP-Funder.com is dedicated to accelerating the CHP renaissance by coupling the resources of talent and capital. CHP-Funder is helping to achieve the promise of CHP power by activating the deployment of the newest information technology management tools and techniques.
Cogeneration is now experiencing a renaissance and long term growth of over 10,000 CHP plants by 2020. Industry analysts have set a CHP market valuation of over $42 billion dollars. Each new CHP plant will cost in the range of $1 to $10 million dollars and will generate approximately $50 million of electricity over its lifetime.
Benefits of CHP
CHP improves business competitiveness by increasing energy efficiency and managing costs and also helps businesses weather energy price volatility and supply disruptions. Combined heat and power (CHP) deployments improve electric grid resilience and mitigates the impacts of extreme weather events by continuing to provide electricity and thermal service in the absence of grid electricity. Further, CHP advances our climate change and environmental goals by reducing emissions of CO2 and other pollutants. Benefits from CHP more broadly include diversifying energy supply by enabling further integration of domestically produced and renewable fuels as well as to improve energy efficiency by capturing heat that is normally wasted.
CHP power is hot; and accelerating worldwide. VC's are just now investing in the growing renaissance of cogeneration with combined heat and power gas turbines.

Cogeneration, also known as Combined Heat & Power (CHP), is an inherently high-efficiency family of technologies to use fossil or renewable fuels to supply energy locally. Heat, power and cooling energy can be supplied to users ranging from individual homes up to large industrial sites, hospitals, universities, mixed-use commercial and retail, and even entire sections of cities.
