Combined Heat & Power: A Competitive, Resilient, Clean Energy Resource in a Carbon Constrained World


Energy Efficient combined heat and power (CHP), also referred to as cogeneration, provides a cost-effective, near-term opportunity to improve our nation’s energy, environmental, and economic future.  Although there are many benefits to operating a CHP system, the implementation of a CHP project can present some challenges. At the same time, new opportunities are emerging for recognizing and valuing CHP as an energy efficiency and supply-side energy resource.  Network and learn from a number of industry representatives, CHP operators, government agencies, and presenters about challenges and lessons learned on CHP market adoption, as well as emerging issues and opportunities.  Timely topics will include: utility incentive programs, utility rate impacts, interconnection barriers, grid modernization, valuing CHP’s energy efficiency, reliability, and resiliency, institutional and commercial sector CHP issues and opportunities, and more.
