Policy Profile

Combined Heat And Power Incentives

Policy description:

Combined heat and power (CHP) allows large industrial users with on-site electricity generation to leverage the heat produced by that generation for beneficial uses in production and building or district heating and cooling. Sometimes referred to as cogeneration, the primary benefit of CHP is very high system efficiency. Whereas separate electric and heating systems may have 40-50% efficiency, CHP offers system efficiencies in the 70-80%+ range. For more information, see the full policy brief.
