INTRODUCTION AND PURPOSE

The Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Emissions Calculator is a tool that compares the
anticipated emissions from a CHP system to the emissions from systems using separate heat
and power (SHP). The CHP Emissions Calculator was originally developed with support from the
U.S. Department of Energy's Distributed Energy Program and Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
Enhancements have been supported by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's CHP
Partnership.1

A user can select from a large number of different SHP system profiles, compare them to
a CHP system (characterized by the user), and estimate the carbon, CO2, SO2 and NOX emissions
from both systems and the corresponding emissions reductions achieved by the CHP
system. The CHP Emissions Calculator is intended to help CHP end users and other
interested parties calculate the emissions attributable to their CHP projects. In addition to
estimating emission reductions, the CHP Emissions Calculator presents the carbon equivalency
of these emissions reductions in terms of acres of trees planted and number of cars removed
from the road (see the Additional Information section below for more information).

The CHP Emissions Calculator is designed for users with at least a moderate understanding of
CHP technology and its terminology; therefore, a glossary of the terms that appear in the
Emissions Calculator is not provided here. If you would like to learn more about CHP
technologies, please visit   www.epa.gov/chp.

Please note that the results generated by the CHP Emissions Calculator are intended for
educational and outreach purposes only; it is not designed for use in developing emission
inventories or preparing air permit applications. All results achieved through the
independent use of the Calculator are subject to error and are not endorsed by the EPA
CHP Partnership. If you are interested in obtaining verified and endorsed Calculator
results for a specific project, please contact Anne Hampson at AHampson@icfi.com
(technical support contractor to the CHP Partnership.)

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

The primary components of the CHP Emissions Calculator are the Inputs and Results
worksheets. (Note: the CHP Emissions Calculator contains two additional worksheets
recommended for advanced users only. See the Additional Information section below for more
information about the use of these worksheets.)

Inputs

To use the Inputs worksheet, you will characterize a CHP system and an equivalent SHP by
completing each of the 29 numbered subsections. Each subsection contains a question, at least
one cell to complete or select, and a Submit button. To complete a subsection, you can choose
among three options:

1) Manually enter or select (from a pull-down menu) system-specific information.
2) Use default system information provided in the available MSExcel note (see below).
3) Skip the subsection.

The CHP Emissions Calculator provides concise instructions and default system information for
each subsection in the form of MSExel notes. To view the notes, move the mouse cursor over
the cell with a red triangle in its upper right-hand corner. When typing an entry into a field, press
the Enter key on your keyboard to complete your entry. After completing a subsection, click on
the corresponding Submit button before moving on to the next subsection.

Note that some subsections are not applicable to the CHP system or displaced SHP and
therefore do not have to be addressed by the user. (For example, if you were to select No from
the dropdown menu in subsection 15 regarding the existence of duct burners, you can then skip
subsections 16, 17 and 18.)

Once you have addressed all 31 subsections, click on one of the Check All Inputs and Go To
Results buttons located on the Inputs worksheet. This action will open the Results worksheet.

If you are having difficulty understanding how to complete the subsections, see the Example
below to view a diagram that explains the components of an example subsection.

Results

The Results worksheet consists of several tables:

     Table 1 (colored white) presents a summary of the emissions information of the CHP
     system, the displaced SHP, and the corresponding emission reductions and relational
     benefits associated with the CHP system.

     Table 2 (colored green) presents a summary of CHP system information.

     Table 3 (colored blue) presents information about displaced thermal production.

     Table 4 (colored yellow) presents information about the displaced electric production.

The remaining tables provide additional emissions information about the CHP system and the
displaced electric and thermal production. The Results worksheet also includes two diagrams that
present the inputs and outputs of the CHP system and displaced SHP.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
        More detailed documentation on the CHP Emissions Calculator is available by clicking on the
        Documentation: Emissions Calculator icon at the top of the Input worksheet.

        The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency supports CHP because of the significant cost-
        effective emissions reductions that can be achieved by increasing efficient energy supply. The
        average efficiency of fossil-fueled power plants in the United States is 33 percent and has
        remained virtually unchanged for 40 years. This means that two-thirds of the energy in the fuel is
        lost-vented as heat-at most power plants in the United States. CHP systems achieve effective
        electrical efficiencies of 50 percent to 70 percent. This improvement in efficiency translates into
        emissions reductions. These reductions can be converted into terms (called relational benefits )
        that are more readily understood by the public. The CHP Emissions Calculator presents these
        relational benefits in terms of acres of forest planted and numbers of cars removed from the road.
        For example, when a CHP system is described as reducing emissions equivalent to planting
        10,000 acres of forest, this means the difference in carbon emissions between the CHP system
        and displaced SHP is equal to the atmospheric carbon annually sequestered by 10,000 acres of
        forest. Likewise, when a CHP system is described as reducing emissions equivalent to 20,000
        cars, this means the difference in carbon emissions between the CHP system and displaced SHP
        is equal to the carbon emissions produced by 20,000 cars each year.
