Factsheet on CHP and Infrastructure Planning

May 13, 2020

Combined heat and power (CHP) systems can play an integral role in a wide array of infrastructure projects because they can reduce energy costs, improve the resiliency of critical infrastructure and communities, increase the reliability of a modern electric grid, and reduce greenhouse gas and other emissions. Our two-page factsheet outlines why CHP systems should be included in infrastructure planning, especially for facilities that require a consistent source of electric and thermal energy. For a more in-depth examination of these topics, see our comprehensive brief on the same topic.
