U.S. DOE funding combined heat and power projects

The U.S. Department of Energy announced in September that it would provide $10 million to fund Combined Heat and Power projects for small and mid-sized manufacturing companies. The goal is to support the CHP industry in providing reliable and energy efficient power to customers. CHP is a technology that uses mostly gas-fired power to produce electricity while generating thermal energy. It’s said to be unique that it provides power to the grid during times of need while supporting more efficient power to on-site owners.
