On April 29, the CHP Alliance submitted comments to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) on Docket No. USDA-2021-0003 regarding USDA’s climate strategy on tackling the climate crisis at home and abroad. In particular, the CHP Alliance provided recommendations on question 2 of the docket—Biofuels, Wood and Other Bioproducts, and Renewable Energy Questions—outlining how there is ample potential for CHP systems to utilize biofuels, bioproducts, and other forms of renewable energy sources. We also encouraged the USDA to partner with the DOE Advanced Manufacturing Office, the CHP Technical Assistance Partnerships, and the Federal Energy Management Program to fully identify the best opportunities to advance CHP and its combinations with decarbonized and renewable fuels.
