CHP in NYC: NE Chapter Responds to Questions from the New York Department of Buildings

Nov 20, 2023


As the New York Department of Buildings grapples with the treatment of distributed energy resources (DERs) — specifically combined heat and power — in the context of Local Law 97, it posed a series of questions to the NE Chapter of the CHP Alliance. In the following document, we have provided answers to those questions. We also seek to demonstrate how CHP systems can serve as decarbonization and resiliency tools to help New York City reach its climate goals and explore how the DOB can properly account for the technology’s benefits within the LL97 rules.

The NE Chapter consulted its membership and third-party experts when preparing these responses.
