Combined Heat and Power for Resiliency - Completed

CHP.jpg

The Combined Heat and Power (CHP) for Resiliency Accelerator worked to support and expand the consideration of CHP solutions to keep critical infrastructure operational every day and night regardless of external events. As a collaborative effort with states, communities, utilities, and other stakeholders, Partners examined the perceptions of CHP among resiliency planners, identified gaps in current technologies or information relative to resiliency needs, and developed plans for communities to capitalize on CHP’s strengths as a reliable, high-efficiency, lower-emissions electricity and heating/cooling source for critical infrastructure.
