Today, U.S. Senators Angus King (I-Maine) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) introduced the Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Support Act, legislation that would support businesses that want to invest in energy efficiency technology, help diversify energy options for rural industries, and maximize Maine’s natural resources.
The Alliance released the following statement of support:
“The Alliance for Industrial Efficiency applauds Senators King and Collins for their leadership in introducing legislation to authorize the Department of Energy’s Combined Heat and Power Technical Partnership Program (“CHP TAPs”),” said David Gardiner, Executive Director, Alliance for Industrial Efficiency. “The CHP TAPs help unleash the potential of combined heat and power (CHP) and waste heat to power (WHP) systems, which are a proven and effective means for reducing energy use in the industrial sector and beyond. We are proud to support this important legislation, which will enhance American competitiveness, reduce harmful emissions, create jobs, and improve resilience for businesses as well as critical infrastructure like hospitals, airports, universities, and more.”
