Coalition Letter Supports Inclusion of HEAT Act Provisions in Energy Bill Conference Report

Aug 11, 2016


The Alliance for Industrial Efficiency organized a coalition letter in support of the “HEAT Act” provisions contained in section 2312 (written as section 2311 in the table of contents) of the Energy Policy Modernization Act (S. 2012). After obtaining 95 signatures from businesses, labor, clean energy, and environmental organizations, the Alliance has submitted the letter to leaders of the House and Senate energy and natural resources committees and provided copies to all the members of the conference committee.

From Fortune 500 companies to labor organizations and small startups, all of the signatories are committed to encouraging the use of combined heat and power (CHP) and waste heat to power (WHP) to enhance U.S. manufacturing competitiveness, increase energy efficiency, and improve the environment. By addressing the challenges facing CHP and WHP, Section 2312 will help strengthen local economies and support national energy policy goals. We are hopeful that this important provision will be included in the conference report of the Energy Bill.
