The Combined Heat & Power Program held its first International Workshop in February. Co-sponsors included the U.S. Combined Heat and Power Assoc. and the International Cogeneration Alliance. Barriers, successful applications of CHP systems worldwide, global climate change impacts, and available technologies and tools were addressed. DOE Assistant Secretary Dan Reicher and key industry representatives participated in a ceremonial signing of the new CHP vision and pledged to further RD&D and outreach efforts. See article on page 8 for details.... The Program is sponsoring regional workshops on roadmapping (geared toward endusers and researchers) and outreach (to inform elected officials and policymakers about CHP system issues and benefits).
