CHP Alliance Files Comments on the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources APS Minimum Standard Review

On Friday, December 4th the Combined Heat and Power Alliance along with 15 other businesses and organizations with interests in Massachusetts sent in comments to the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) regarding the 2020 Alternative Energy Portfolio Standard (APS) Minimum Standard Review. The DOER hired Daymark Energy to conduct a study on the state’s APS, and the Alliance notes that there are several assertions in the Daymark Energy APS Review that are highly controversial and urges the DOER to revisit the empirical basis on claims that discredit the emission reductions and cost savings of CHP systems.

In our letter to DOER, the CHP Alliance fully endorses the comments submitted by the Northeast Clean Heat and Power Initiative (NECHPI). NECHPI goes into great length answering the numerous stakeholder questions solicited by DOER, and includes appendices of both testimonials showcasing CHP’s benefits in Massachusetts and a slide deck presentation commenting on the analysis conducted by Daymark that concluded natural gas CHP provides no CO2 reductions.
