CHP Resources & Publications

Welcome to the Combined Heat and Power Program Resources and Publications Library.  Use this page to find CHP-related resources and publications.


  • CHP Project Profiles Database
    In this database, more than 200 CHP Project Profiles compiled by DOE's CHP Technical Assistance Partnerships (TAPs) can be searched by a variety of characteristics.
  • CHP Installation Database
    This database contains a comprehensive listing of combined heat and power installations throughout the country.
  • Microgrid Installation Database
    This database contains a comprehensive listing of microgrid installations throughout the country.

Packaged CHP eCatalog and Accelerator

  • eCatalog
    The Packaged CHP Catalog (eCatalog) is a public-private partnership designed to increase deployment of CHP. It functions as an open source, web-based system that features DOE-recognized packaged CHP systems.
  • Packaged CHP Accelerator
    The Packaged CHP Accelerator was initiated to catalyze the deployment of standardized, packaged CHP systems suitable for a wide range of end user facilities.
  • Packaged CHP Technology Overview and Market Profile
    This report provides background on packaged CHP systems, an overview of their benefits, a profile of current packaged CHP installations, and a summary of future market trends.

Fact Sheets


  • CHP Technical Potential in the United States
    This market analysis report provides data on the technical potential in industrial facilities and commercial buildings for “topping cycle” CHP, waste heat to power CHP (WHP CHP), and district energy CHP in the U.S. 
  • CHP Financing Primer
    This financing primer provides checklists of information that financiers need to evaluate CHP investment opportunities, and discusses how CHP developers can best tailor their financing approach to a specific project. 
  • CHP: A Clean Energy Solution
    A paper by the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that provides a foundation for national discussions on effective ways to increase utilization of CHP, and includes an overview of the key issues currently impacting CHP deployment and the factors that need to be considered by stakeholders participating in the dialogue.
  • Characterization of CHP Opportunities at U.S. Wastewater Treatment Plants
    This report examines the current state of anaerobic digester gas-fueled CHP at wastewater treatment plants, identifies critical implementation factors, and estimates the technical potential for new CHP installations. 
  • CHP in Integrated Resource Planning: Examples and Planning Considerations
    A report by The State and Local Energy Efficiency Action Network (SEE Action) Industrial Energy Efficiency and CHP Working Group that explores the role that CHP can play as both a supply-side and demand-side resource in utility integrated resource plans (IRPs).

Issue Briefs

CHP for Resiliency Accelerator
The Accelerator website provides guides and tools for those evaluating the use of CHP to improve resilience. Among available resources are:

Other CHP Resources

  • CHP Policy and Program Profiles
    DOE's CHP Technical Assistance Partnerships (CHP TAPs) developed a series of profiles describing current policies or programs impacting CHP deployment in their regions, including history of development, outcomes of successful policies, and lessons learned in implementation. 
  • State of CHP in All 50 States
    This fact sheet series provides a general overview of the state of combined heat and power (CHP) technologies in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, including data on current installations, technical potential, and economics for CHP.
