Fact Sheets

Combined heat and power (CHP)—sometimes called cogeneration—is an integrated set of technologies for the simultaneous, on-site production of electricity and heat. R&D breakthroughs can help U.S. manufacturers introduce advanced technologies and systems to users in the United States and around the world. AMO's CHP R&D project portfolio tests, validates, and deploys innovative CHP and distributed energy for industry and other manufacturing applications. Projects include advanced reciprocating engine systems (ARES), packaged CHP systems, high-value applications, fuel-flexible CHP, and demonstrations of these technologies. Fact sheets and case studies on select projects are available below.
