CHP Technical Assistance Partnerships (CHP TAPs)

You are here

DOE's CHP Technical Assistance Partnerships (CHP TAPs) promote and assist in transforming the market for CHP, waste heat to power, and district energy technologies/concepts throughout the United States. Key services of the CHP TAPs include:

  • Market Opportunity Analyses – Supporting analyses of CHP market opportunities in diverse markets including industrial, federal, institutional, and commercial sectors.
  • Education and Outreach – Providing information on the energy/non-energy benefits and applications of CHP to state and local policy makers, regulators, energy end-users, trade associations and others.
  • Technical Assistance – Help end-users consider CHP, waste heat to power, and/or district energy with CHP in their facility, including assisting project development from initial CHP screening to installation.

The CHP TAPs offered technical assistance to facilities impacted by the Boiler MACT regulation.

Visit the CHP Project Profiles Database. Search by state, CHP TAP, market sector, North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code, system size, technology/prime mover, fuel, thermal energy use, and year installed.

Contact the CHP TAP in your area and read this CHP Deployment Program fact sheet. CHP TAPs were formerly called the Clean Energy Application Centers (CEACs).
