Energy market study shows vast commercial potential of CHP

Where does your state rank?

A new U.S. Department of Energy report “Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Technical Potential in the United States,” provides impressive data on the potential of CHP in commercial buildings and industrial facilities throughout the U.S.

Recently released by the Energy Department’s Advanced Manufacturing Office, the market analysis report offers data on the technical potential of CHP in commercial buildings and industrial facilities 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 enough information for stakeholders to consider including combined heat and power in their strategic energy planning and energy efficiency program design.

The study shows there is an estimated 240GW of technical potential at more than 291,000 sites within the U.S. Data are broken down 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 breakdowns by size, range, and facility type.
