Combined Heat and Power (CHP) is an important option for states to consider in developing strategies to meet their emission targets under the Clean Power Plan. This Template is designed to highlight key issues that states should consider when evaluating whether CHP could be a meaningful component of their compliance plans. It demonstrates that CHP can be a valuable approach for reducing emissions and helping states achieve their targets.
While actual plans will vary dependent upon state-specific factors and determinations, this Template provides the tools and methodology that states will need to begin the process. If the Clean Power Plan (CPP) is implemented in a form close to what has been proposed, it can support the deployment of CHP. This Template provides key background information to help states incorporate CHP into their plans.
