Publication Date : October 06, 2017
Authors : J. Kelly, A. Elgowainy
Abstract : This document describes additions of several combined heat and power (CHP) electrical generating plants to the GREET® (Greenhouse gases, Regulated Emissions, and Energy use in Transportation) model. The GREET model was originally developed to evaluate fuel-cycle (or well-to-wheels) energy use and emissions of various transportation technologies (Wang 1999). Numerous electricity generating technology and fuel pathways exist within GREET and this update describes how CHP data was obtained and integrated within 2017 GREET.
