CHP Technical Assistance Partnerships

DOE CHP Technical Assistance Partnerships Logo

A new reportPDF developed by DOE, EPA, and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development provides practical information on factors to consider when configuring a CHP system to operate independently of the grid.

DOE's CHP Technical Assistance Partnerships (CHP TAPs), formerly called the Clean Energy Application Centers (CEACs), promote and assist in transforming the market for CHP, waste heat to power, and district energy technologies and concepts throughout the United States.

Key services of the CHP Technical Assistance Partnerships include:

  • Market Opportunity Analyses – Supporting analyses of CHP market opportunities in diverse markets including industrial, federal, institutional, and commercial sectors.
  • Education and Outreach – Providing information on the energy and non-energy benefits and applications of CHP to state and local policy makers, regulators, energy end-users, trade associations and others.
  • Technical Assistance – Providing technical assistance to end-users and stakeholders to help them consider CHP, waste heat to power, and/or district energy with CHP in their facility and to help them through the project development process from initial CHP screening to installation.

The CHP Technical Assistance Partnerships are offering technical assistance to the more than 550 major source facilities impacted by the Boiler MACT regulation.

To learn more about the involvement of CHP Technical Assistance Partnerships in project development, visit the CHP Projects page. For more information on a particular CHP TAP, see the table below.
