Combined Heat and Power in the Energy Transition

The Combined Heat and Power (CHP) market is changing quickly. 90% of the CHP systems installed since 2020 provide resilient power and heating/cooling to commercial buildings and critical infrastructure facilities in a cost-effective way. Clean fuels, synergies with renewable energy technologies, and incentives position CHP (also called cogeneration) as an essential contributor to the energy transition. This webinar will present how federal buildings and critical infrastructure can benefit from the deployment of clean energy technologies and the technical assistance provided at no cost by the Department of Energy.
