National CHP Roadmap: Doubling Combined Heat and Power Capacity in the United States by 2010, March 2001

The National CHP Roadmap document is the culmination of more than 18 state, regional, national, and international workshops, and numerous discussions, planning studies, and assessments. The origin of these activities was a conference held in Alexandria, Virginia, on December 1, 1998, where the “CHP Challenge” was initiated by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with the goal of doubling the amount of CHP capacity in the United States from 46 GW to 92 GW by 2010. The U.S. Combined Heat and Power Association (USCHPA) accepted the CHP Challenge and agreed to launch a vision and roadmap process to identify how to achieve this goal.
