Last year, the CHP Alliance hosted its second annual Summit, titled “CHP in a Sustainable Future: Clean, Reliable Energy for Resilient Communities.” We had more than 200 attendees from industries and sectors including CHP development, design, manufacturing, engineering, distribution, and construction; federal, state, and municipal government; electric and gas utilities; non-profits; universities; trade associations finance and investment; and end-users. Attendees hailed from 24 states and the District of Columbia, as well as 5 countries outside the U.S.

The Summit successfully convened a diverse group of stakeholders, including industry experts, end users and potential hosts, government leaders, policymakers, utilities, climate advocates, and other members of the clean energy community. The event showcased the many benefits of CHP including reduced emissions, resilience and reliability, and economic competitiveness, and was particularly focused on CHP’s resiliency and reliability, key benefits to promoting sustainability in the 21st century.
