CHP Mission Critical Facilities

In certain industries and mission critical facilities, the reliability of electric power supply materially affects a business or organization’s ability to carry out its day-to-day function.


CHP mission critical power systems are designed to increase power reliability and add redundancy to building systems. CHP partners will conduct an audit of your facility to determine single points of power and HVAC failure, and complete a plan to remediate system weaknesses.

According to the September 2013 Guide to Using Combined Heat and Power for Enhancing Reliability and Resiliency in Buildings, “During and after Hurricane Sandy, combined heat and power (CHP) enabled a number of critical infrastructure and other facilities to continue their operations when the electric grid went down. Time and again, CHP has proved its value as an alternative source of power and thermal energy (heating and cooling) during emergencies, and demonstrated how it can be a sound choice in making energy infrastructure more resilient in the face of extreme weather events.”

CHP mission critical power systems are designed to increase power reliability and add redundancy to building systems.

GEM Energy will conduct an site survey of your facility to determine single points of power and HVAC failure, and complete a plan to remediate system weaknesses. If you would like us to assess your site for a mission critical CHP evaluation, you can complete and forward the survey form.

, Senior Vice President, GEM Energy, at the Critical Power and Data Center Summit.

On November 7, 2012, GEM Energy hosted the northwest Ohio region’s first Critical Power and Data Center Summit in partnership with Capstone Turbine Corporation and The University of Toledo. The market density of microturbine installations in Toledo, Ohio, is the highest in the world with some of the most moderate electric rates to be found anywhere. The agenda also included tours of the modular Capstone-powered ReliaFlex® unit at The University of Toledo, as well as system installations at SeaGate Convention Centre, Huntington Center, the Toledo Museum of Art and the Glass Pavilion at the Toledo Museum of Art.
