The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy selected eight organizations to further the installation of cost-effective, highly efficient combined heat and power (CHP). The selected organizations will become regional CHP Technical Assistance Partnerships (CHP TAPs), who will assist in the development of strategies to increase resilience to natural disasters and improve grid and electric delivery reliability, maximize CHP exposure to potential end-users and key stakeholders, and to locally validate best practices in CHP technology policies and installation.
