National Grid's Grid for Good program hosted several workshops from March 17 to April 7, 2022. On March 24, the New York-New Jersey CHP TAP, the featured presenter, provided an introduction to CHP and discussed how a career in energy, district energy, microgrids, CHP, geothermal districts, etc. can be an exciting career choice.

College and university campuses around the globe are leaders in education, research, and innovation, and an evolution is underway to renew, decarbonize, and strengthen these important community assets. College and university campuses have emerged as global leaders in the operation and optimization of world-class district energy systems. Register for the IDEA CampusEnergy2022 Virtual Program, featuring session recordings of nearly 100 educational sessions featuring more than 170 speakers.

Participants joined a panel of distinguished experts and industry leaders to help shape the priorities and activities for NECHPI in 2022. They discussed how to distinguish the societal and environmental benefits of CHP and its role in the pathway to decarbonization and a zero-carbon world.

  • Webinar: Renewably-Fueled Combined Heat & Power: End-Use Technology Opportunities in the Northeast and New England States, November 18, 2021

Participants heard from regional experts on the status of the use of greater renewable gas technologies involving CHP systems with higher efficiencies and fewer emissions in New England and the Northeast.

The CHPA hosted a free webinar about how CHP fits into future energy systems. Participants learned about the current state of the electric grid and gas system in the United States, the future of each, and how CHP will continue to work with these systems to provide cleaner, reliable energy that will support our communities and make them more resilient in the face of a changing climate. Attendees also heard about the U.S. Department of Energy's work on CHP and learned about the CHP system at the Ford Motor Company campus in Dearborn, Michigan.

The U.S. Department of Energy shared how to identify candidate CHP projects opportunities, provided an overview of the CHP project development process, and explained the step-by-step screening analysis for CHP—a no-cost service provided to end users through the U.S. Department of Energy CHP TAP program.

This webinar focused on strategies for industrial and manufacturing sectors to increase energy utilization, improve resilience, and meet clean energy goals through the installation of CHP.

The U.S. Department of Energy held the 2021 Better Buildings, Better Plants Summit virtually on May 17-20, 2021. This four-day leadership symposium consisted of online webinars and peer exchanges with fellow industry stakeholders and experts. This annual event for Better Buildings, Better Plants Partners and other stakeholders provided the opportunity for professionals to explore emerging technologies and share innovative strategies in energy and water efficiency.

  • Webinar: Greening CHP – Meeting CO2 and Environmental Goals with CHP Technology, May 12, 2021

The webinar featured a panel discussion with distinguished experts at the forefront of carbon-neutral and environmentally beneficial CHP applications and issues, including hydrogen-fueled CHP, controlled environmental agriculture, brownfield redevelopment, food deserts, and social equity. Participants learned how CHP can meet a variety of crucial roles in a carbon-neutral future.

New important features have been added to National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s free solar+wind+storage online optimization tool, REopt Lite. This webinar focused on REopt Lite’s new CHP module, which allows users to evaluate the economic and resilience benefits of different types of CHP prime movers as well as chilled water storage, hot water storage, and absorption chillers. These technologies can be evaluated on their own or in combination with solar PV, wind, and battery storage.
