Policy Priorities

The Combined Heat and Power Alliance advocates for state and federal policies that reduce financial and regulatory barriers for CHP and WHP. We work to expand markets for CHP and WHP systems by supporting smart energy legislation and by highlighting the role that CHP and WHP can play in reducing emissions.

Removing Financial Barriers

We are working to remove financial barriers by supporting robust utility efficiency programs and federal financial incentives, such as an Investment Tax Credit, Master Limited Partnerships, and Private Activity Bonds for CHP and Waste Heat to Power.

Creating Markets

We are developing markets for CHP and Waste Heat to Power by overcoming utility barriers, supporting deployment targets, and ensuring their inclusion in state clean energy standards.

Working with Key Stakeholders

We are working with stakeholders across the market to advance CHP and Waste Heat to Power, provide technical assistance to end users, and to increase federal procurement and deployment of these technologies.
