Commercial & Industrial

Capstone MicroTurbines generate power and heat simultaneously.  Using both maximizes energy efficiency and minimizes the purchase of fuels from traditional energy sources.

Using both energy outputs is called cogeneration or CHP: combined heat and power. Onsite CHP can generate electricity, hot water, chilled water, or steam for you facility at the same time.

The heat output of Capstone MicroTurbines can also be used to air condition your facility with absorption cooling.  This technique is called trigeneration or CCHP: combined cooling, heating, and power. Cooling when it’s hot, heating when it’s not and reliable, affordable power every day.

Capstone turbines allow your facility to operate independently of the unstable utility grid.  This is known as dual mode or standalone operation, which allow the microturbines to island your facility upon grid failure and run indefinitely.

This page contains case studies on commercial and industrial facilities that are currently utilizing our technology.
