The Above 300 MW segment is expected to hold the largest share of the combined heat & power market, by capacity, during the forecast period.

The Above 300 MW segment consists of large coal, nuclear, or natural gas fired power plants, with gas turbines and steam turbines as the prime movers. The segment caters mainly to the utilities, district heating & cooling end-users. The segment is expected to be driven by the rising adoption of natural gas fired power generation in the Asia Pacific region, particularly in China and South Korea. The phasing out of coal-based power generation has given rise to large-scale natural gas-fired cogeneration plants. The rapid demand for heat and steam in industries and requirement of municipal district heating & cooling is driving the growth in this segment. The shale gas boom in North America is another driving factor for growth in this segment, with utility-scale natural gas fired power plants being set up in the region.

The utilities, district heating & cooling segment is expected to dominate the combined heat & power market, by end-user, in 2018.

The utilities, district heating & cooling segment refers to the supply of thermal energy generated at a central facility for applications such as space heating or water heating, steam provision throughout a city or district, and industrial complex or for cooling through trigeneration to provide chilled water. Utilities can use CHP systems to monetize heat generated as a by-product of electricity generation, combined with the savings from high operational efficiency of these systems to up to as much as 80% as compared with just 30% for non-CHP setup. The market for utilities, district heating & cooling segment will be driven by increasing energy efficiency regulations and compliance needs for utilities, the need to reduce carbon emissions and the cost savings offered by CHP systems, especially in regions of Europe and Asia Pacific.
