Today, a new breed of CHP gen set ranging from micro- to large-scale multi-megawatt power sources is emerging. Most are transportable or built into shippingcontainers. Unlike solar and wind generators, their systems can make a lot more power with less real estate and run 24 hours a day, seven days a week every day of the year
There are some new generating systems running on biomass wood chips or pellets although they are not as popular as the defacto standard — natural gas powered sets. The fuels from biogas components can be reclaimed from farm products and landfills, proving economical by using the methane gas created from food product waste.
