Cogeneration for Recreational FacilitiesCHP used for heated pool and humidity controlCombined Heat & Power System

Aegis Energy Services has successfully designed and installed Combined Heat and Power systems in hundreds of recreational facilities, including water parks, YMCA’s, JCC’s, municipal indoor pools, and college athletic centers. An Aegen Thermo Power TP-75 is a modular, scalable on-site cogeneration system that reduces energy costs in recreational applications due to its high efficiency generation of electricity and useable waste heat to supply a large thermal demand usually required for pool heating, ambient air dehumidification, and domestic hot water. Useable heat, produced by the CHP system not only heats pool water, but can dehumidify ambient air in the pool area by employing absorption cooling, heat wheels, or other desiccant systems.

In our extensive experience with recreational facilities, we have found that the success of a cogeneration installation is driven primarily on sizing the CHP system based on the thermal needs of the building. It is for this reason that our combined-cycle efficiencies approach 85%.

Here are some of the characteristics that make an Aegis Energy Services cogeneration system a good fit at recreational facilities.

  • Hot water heating systems
  • 30,000+ therms of gas used annually
  • Master Electric Metering
  • High Electric Rates
  • Heated pools
