The International CHP/DHC Collaborative - Advancing Near-Term Low Carbon Technologies, July 2008

The International Energy Agency (IEA) has developed a scorecard of national Combined Heat and Power (CHP)/District Heat and Cooling (DHC) policy efforts that takes into account three criteria: the effectiveness of past policies in developing the CHP/DHC market over the last 5 years; statements and commitments of intent in respect of future CHP/DHC policy, for example through the creation of national growth targets; and the existence today of meaningful policy incentives that are already causing significant market growth or that are likely to do so in the near future.  This document presents the scorecard for the United States.
