Description:

The U.S. EPA operates the Environmental Technology Verification program to facilitate the deployment of innovative technologies through performance verification and information dissemination. A technology area of interest is distributed electrical power generation, particularly with combined heat and power (CHP) capability. An environmental benefit of some distributed generation technologies is the ability to fuel these systems with renewable energy sources such as anaerobic digester gas or landfill gas. EPA collaborated with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority to evaluate the performance of a Caterpillar Model G379 internal combustion engine and generator combined heat and power (CHP) system manufactured by Martin Machinery and fueled with biogas generated at a dairy farm owned and operated by Patterson Farms near Auburn, New York.
