Rayburn Office Building Room 2103
Independence Ave SW (between 1st St SW & S. Capitol St SE)

The Alliance for Industrial Efficiency, the Pew Charitable Trusts, Heat is Power Association, and the CHP Association invite you to a briefing on the impact of the Power Efficiency and Resiliency (POWER) Act on the deployment of combined heat and power (CHP) and waste heat to power (WHP) systems. CHP and WHP, which capture waste heat to produce electricity and/or heat or cool buildings, are distributed generation technologies that help achieve national economic, environmental, and energy goals. These cost-effective and time-tested systems improve efficiency, reduce emissions, lower expenses, and strengthen grid reliability. The bipartisan POWER Act proposed in the House (H.R. 2657) and the Senate (S. 1516) ensures these systems are provided equal standing with other clean and efficient systems in the federal tax code.
