Commercial application is estimated to witness growth on account of rising energy demand along with widespread adoption of smart district heating systems. Stringent infrastructure emission norms in line with increasing favorable incentives and state tax exemptions will augment the deployment of CHP facilities.

For instance, the Arizona Corporation Commission introduced energy and power equipment property tax exemption in 2018, including incentives, rebates and grants of USD 450/kW – USD 550/kW to commercial customers across CHP installation. The power and energy equipment tax exemption will help in replacing the conventional cogeneration systems with advanced technologies.

Natural gas based North America CHP market is estimated to exceed USD 600 million by 2026. Refurbishment and replacement of existing energy generation plants coupled with declining unit cost owing to increasing hydrocarbon production will further strengthen the business scenario. Moreover, increasing product efficiency and low fuel consumption will push the industry portfolio.

Ongoing technological enhancement coupled with rising investments toward research & development activities will positively sway the North America CHP industry potential. For instance, ENER-G launched an innovative CHP technology ‘E-Power’ in 2018. This technology will improve the overall system performance and enhance the product portfolio by increasing its efficiency and minimizing maintenance cost.

 Moreover, introduction of government plans and schemes including various renewable energy programs and road transport fuel certificates will strengthen biomass combined heat and power plants demand across the region.

Gas turbine technology-based CHP will witness growth on account of rising installation of natural gas fired systems subject to low carbon footprint along with paradigm shift toward smart heating networks. Refurbishment and replacement of traditional power generation units with efficient cogeneration plants will fuel the industry trends.

For instance, the U.S. government announced ambitious plan to minimize the GHG emission followed by abandonment of various coal plants by 2023. Ongoing low emission programs by state government will replace the coal fired power plants and increase the domestic renewable power generation ratio.

Easy configuration and effective design of combined cycle power plants will complement the product adoption across the manufacturing industries. Growing investment toward development of efficient district heating networks and integrated heat & electrical power generation plants will push the product adoption.

5 MW – 20 MW capacity segment of North America CHP market is anticipated to exceed USD 80 million by 2026. Increasing power consumption by commercial, industrial and utility establishments will positively stimulate the product deployment. In addition, growing demand for continuous and reliable power supply for operative manufacturing processes will complement the installation of CHP facilities. Ongoing adoption of renewable power consumption to minimize high sulfur fuels usage coupled with government policies pertaining to low GHG emissions will propel the combined heat and power industry statistics.

Ongoing technological enhancements across reciprocating engines to improve medium and large engines energy efficiency by 45% will complement the North America combined heat and power market outlook. In addition, growing inclination toward installation of biomass fueled systems along with increasing applicability of CHP units across colder regions will boost the product penetration.

U.S. combined heat and power market exceeded USD 140 million in 2019. Favorable resiliency initiatives, state incentives, policies and CHP-inclined regulations are key measures which will drive the product adoption. For instance, the U.S. government in 2019 announced updated self-generation incentive program to increase the adoption of renewable fuels and enhance the minimum fuel mixture blend of by 50%.

In addition, ongoing replacement of coal generation power plants with low carbon footprint systems will augment the industry dynamics.

COVID-19 impact on the industry may affect the installation of CHP plants owing to delay in ongoing projects along with reduction in manufacturing processes. In addition, the demand for these plants may witness a marginal decline owing to the minimal on-site operations, supply chain interruptions. However, the region is focusing on over-compensating coronavirus impact by enhancing the operations as the prospect arises, in turn, leading to gradual business growth by second half of 2020.
