Denver Metro Wastewater Reclamation District

Denver’s Metro Wastewater Reclamation District is the largest wastewater plant in the Rocky Mountain west. All of the fuel for its 6.2-MW CHP is renewable and made onsite - a byproduct of the treatment process. They recycle the heat, too, saving natural gas and greenhouse gas emissions. For MWRD, CHP "costs less and is more predictable than purchased electricity."

National Project Profile Search

CHP already accounts for nearly 10 percent of our nation's energy - numbering over 4,000 local, clean, and efficient systems and counting - and we have the potential for far more. The DOE's CHP Technical Assistance Partnerships have put together Project Profiles on over 100 individual CHP systems across the country, illustrating the diversity, benefits, operating conditions, equipment configurations, and lessons learned from these sites. Use the search tool below to find Project Profiles that match your own site's characteristics.
