Natural gas power generation is a cost-effective method of generating electricity. NG power generators have been successfully installed in a wide variety of energy intensive facilities in Canada, including district energy systems, wastewater treatment facilities, schools, nursing homes, hospitals, office buildings, and residential buildings. However, more than 60% of the energy is wasted in the form of heat loss, and major heat loss is carried by the hot flue gas. The waste heat of flue gas can be recovered for domestic hot water supply, and also can be used to provide space heating in winter and space cooling in summer. In partnership with FEED Engineering Inc., the Thermal Management and Multiphase Flows Lab at UBC will develop a microchannel plate & shell heat exchanger for the effective recovery of waste heat from the flue gas of natural gas power generation.
