Two techniques are described for preliminary screening of facilities to determine potential cost and energy savings from implementing combined cooling, heating, and power. The first technique can be performed with a simple hand-held calculator and employs average costs for equipment, power, and fuel. The second technique employs a simulation tool run on a desktop computer. It draws upon extensive databases for equipment cost and performance, utility rates, and calculated building electrical and thermal loads.
