Hotels and casinos represent an excellent but underutilized market for combined heat and power (CHP). According to the U.S. EPA, of the nearly 48,000 hotels in the United States, about 10,000 have the energy characteristics suitable for current CHP technology. More than 1,000 of these sites are likely to meet a simple payback on their investment within five years or less. The Rio was the first Las Vegas hotel and casino to incorporate CHP in 2004 and MGM City Center is the second system commissioned in 2009. These two projects provide important insight into CHP system design, operation and economic which is the subject of this seminar.
