An Energy and Environmental Analysis of Propane Energy Pod Homes

Bundles or collections of building systems in homes can form the basis of an energy package or “pod,” delivering energy and CO2 emissions savings that outperform typical new homes in the marketplace. The Propane Energy Pod is a model for new construction that treats a home’s five key areas of energy use — space heating, water heating, cooking, fireplaces, and clothes drying — as parts of a whole-home energy package.

Impact of Combined Heat and Power Systems in Residential and Commercial Buildings

Combined Heat and Power (CHP) systems, as the name implies, serve dual purposes. First, they use a propane or natural gas generator to create electricity. Simultaneously, the heat from the engine is captured and used to warm the building or create hot water, reducing energy costs. The electricity produced from the generator is used by the home, further reducing energy costs.
