Combined Heat and Power for Industrial Revitalization

July 2013 | Thomas Simchak, Stacey Davis

This paper highlights the advantages of Combined Heat and Power (CHP) in improving industrial competitiveness and environmental quality. It examines current and potential levels of CHP deployment in the industrial sector along with
key economic and policy drivers, discusses barriers to greater CHP penetration, and identifies a number of policy actions that can mitigate these barriers. In particular, federal and state governments (and where relevant, non-governmental actors like grid operators) should focus on policies that remove the main barriers to CHP deployment and improve conditions for private investment in ways that are fair to utilities and ratepayers.
