Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Deployment Resources

Explore combined heat and power (CHP) deployment resources, including databases, fact sheets, reports, and issue briefs.


Packaged CHP eCatalog and Accelerator

  • Packaged CHP eCatalog
    The Packaged CHP eCatalog is a public/private partnership designed to increase deployment of efficient CHP through the development of a searchable web-based system that hosts commercially available Packaged CHP Systems recognized by DOE to meet specific performance standards.
  • Packaged CHP Accelerator
    The Packaged CHP Accelerator was a partnership of eCatalog Suppliers and Customer Engagement Partners committed to catalyze the deployment of standardized, packaged CHP systems suitable for a wide range of end user facilities through use of the Packaged CHP eCatalog.
  • 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 United States. 
  • 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 DOE 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 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 additional CHP installations in this sector.
  • 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).
