The World Alliance for Decentralized Energy (WADE) is the leading global organization focused on economic and environmentally-sensible decentralized energy systems for power, heating, cooling and processing. WADE and its Cogeneration Industries Council work with affiliated chapter organizations to advance deployment of a broad range of onsite energy technologies and systems using natural gas, biogas and other clean fuels in cogeneration (combined heat and power or “CHP”), trigeneration, micro CHP, district energy, district heating and cooling and microgrid systems, as well as systems that are fueled by renewable energy sources and waste heat to power. Implementation of efficient distributed generation power systems reduces the net water usage and emissions associated with typical central power generation while providing energy security and economic benefits to the user.
