Encouraging CHP as a Resource

While CHP is known for its energy efficiency benefits, few states actively identify it as an energy resource comparable to more traditional energy resources such as centralized power plants. Since CHP savings can be viewed as energy efficiency savings like other energy efficiency measures, the most appropriate place for these efforts to reside is within state energy efficiency goals and programs, though they can sometimes reside in other types of portfolio standards.

There are currently no state policies designed to acquire energy savings from CHP (like other efficiency resources) or energy generation from CHP (in terms of kWh production) that apply to all forms of CHP.
