Abstract : This report presents the results of an assessment of decentralized small cogeneration application for Navy shore facilities. For the purpose of this study, small cogeneration includes packaged, preengineered cogeneration systems with electric generating capacities below about 500 kW. The characteristics of the available small cogeneration equipment are collected and summarized. The available energy use data on hospitals, unaccompanied enlisted personnel housing (UEPH) and unaccompanied officer personnel housing (UOPM) at four Navy bases are analyzed. A method for applying small cogeneration equipment to such facilities is developed and used. The energy and economic characteristics of these applications are summarized and discussed. Four economically attractive decentralized small cogeneration applications are identified. (Author)
