Distributed Energy Technology Characterization (Desiccant Technologies), January 2004

The purpose of this report is to characterize desiccant technology and applications, and to show how these technologies can be designed to utilize the available thermal energy from a combined heat and power (CHP) system. This technology characterization is intended to provide decision-makers and system developers with information on appropriate applications, basic system design and sizing principles, and cost and performance of desiccant systems alone and as part of an integrated energy system (IES).
