Caterpillar provides customized CHP system package proposals, including the required mechanical equipment and controls to capture and transfer the engine thermal energy to an industrial facility. In addition, Caterpillar offers exhaust emissions aftertreatment for highly regulated emission environments and utility grade Cat paralleling switchgear to sell excess electricity generated to the local electric grid.
There has been an increasing move toward natural gas fueled standby power systems in recent years. Typically installed with an automatic transfer switch (ATS) or paralleling switchgear control for multiple generators, these power systems sense utility outages and automatically start the backup power system and transfer power to the emergency source. When normal grid power returns, the control system automatically shuts down the emergency generator.
The 3516E diesel generator sets have been developed to meet your standby and prime applications and match your power standards. Producing reliable power from 2725 to 3000 ekW at 60 Hz, each generator set has been designed to meet ISO 8528-5 transient response requirements and to accept 100 percent rated load in one step. The generator set is US EPA Stationary Emergency Use Only (Tier 2) certified.Learn More
The C13 diesel generator sets have been developed for your mission critical, standby and prime applications. Producing reliable power from 320 to 400 ekW at 60 Hz, each generator set has been designed to meet ISO 8528-5 transient response requirements and built to accept 100 percent rated load in one step. Our C13 generator sets are certified to Low Fuel Consumption Emissions / Fuel Strategy.Learn More
Producing reliable power from 830 to 1250 ekW at 60 Hz, our C32 diesel generator sets are made to meet your mission critical, continuous, standby and prime applications. We've designed each to ISO 8528-5 transient response requirements and to accept 100 per cent rated load in one step. Generator sets range from low fuel consumption systems to EPA Stationary Emergency (Tier 2) certification.Learn More
From natural gas-fueled combined heat and power (CHP) systems and emergency power for facilities, to renewable biogas energy to support the local grid, or electricity generated from coal mine gases, Caterpillar has a wide range of reliable gas power solutions.Learn More

A Cat microgrid solution provides increased energy efficiency with no reliance on the grid and optimal total cost of ownership. High performance, scalable systems are designed and built for easy and quick installation even in challenging environments.
From large industrial installations to small rural communities, a thin film installation produces more energy, more consistently, with higher energy density than the competition. And through predictable performance and a lower rate of depreciation, it lowers levelized cost of electricity.
