A brief description of cogeneration technologies deployed:

A Combined Heat and Power system was delivered in 2011 and the installation continues into 2012. In 2012 NC State will be producing 11 MW of electricity from two 5.5 Megawatt gas combustion turbines and steam from two 50,000 pound per hour heat recovery steam generators. The system will provide roughly 30 percent of electrical power needs of main campus. Additionally, the cogeneration plant will increase the efficiency of steam production by approximately 35% and reduce NC State’s greenhouse gas emissions by 8 percent.
