On November 17, 2021 from 1:00 – 2:00 pm ET, the Combined Heat and Power Alliance hosted a webinar which highlighted their recent report, CHP and the Clean Energy Future: How CHP Fits into a Modern Electric Grid and a Green Gas System, and discussed how CHP will work with these systems now and into the future to provide reliable electric and thermal energy while lowering emissions and saving money.
The webinar began with a presentation of the report’s main findings from lead author and CHPA Deputy Executive Director, Lynn A. Kirshbaum. Attendees then heard from Anne Hampson of the Department of Energy’s Advanced Manufacturing Office about their work on CHP deployment, research on CHP’s role in meeting decarbonization goals, and new federal funding opportunities that could advance CHP projects. Participants also learned from Rick Humphries of DTE Vantage about the benefits of a CHP system installed at the Ford Motor Company campus in Dearborn, Michigan.
