The U.S. Department of Energy's Advanced Manufacturing Office recently released a new report, "Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Technical Potential in the United States."
The “Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Technical Potential in the United States” market analysis report provides data on the technical potential in industrial facilities and commercial buildings for “topping cycle” CHP, waste heat to power CHP (WHP CHP), and district energy CHP in the U.S. The goal of the report is to provide data on the technical potential for CHP in sufficient detail for stakeholders to consider combined heat and power in strategic energy planning and energy efficiency program design. The study shows there is estimated to be more than 240GW of technical potential at over 291,000 sites within the U.S. Data are provided nationally by CHP system size range, facility type, and state. Each state’s technical potential is shown in detail on state profile pages that include break-downs by size range and facility type.
