Clean Energy Application Centers
A new report 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 Regional Clean Energy Application Centers (CEACs), formerly called the Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Regional Application Centers (RACs), 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 Regional Clean Energy Application Centers include:
Market Assessments – Supporting analyses of CHP market potential in diverse sectors such as health care, industrial sites, hotels, and new commercial and institutional buildings.
Education and Outreach – Providing information on the benefits and applications of CHP to state and local policy makers, regulators, energy end-users, trade associations, and others.
Technical Assistance – Providing technical information to energy end-users and others to help them consider if CHP, waste heat recovery or district energy makes sense for them. This includes performing site assessments, producing project feasibility studies, and providing technical and financial analyses.
The Clean Energy Application Centers are offering technical assistance to the more than 550 major source facilities impacted by the Boiler MACT regulation. For this technical assistance, contact:
