Tuesday, May 22nd, Northeast-Midwest Coalition members will introduce the
Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Advancement Act. This legislation
ensures that highly efficient combined heat and power systems are allowed
to interconnect nationwide with the electricity grid. The House
bill also clarifies tax credits for CHP systems.
Combined Heat and Power Advancement Act to be Introduced
heat and power technologies are specifically mentioned in the President's
National Energy Policy report released last week. These technologies are
promoted by the Administration and the Congress because they produce
electricity, heat in the form of steam, and cooling by recovering wasted
energy which otherwise would be vented to the atmosphere in the form of
greenhouse gases. As a result, a CHP systemís total emissions are
considerably lower than those produced from separate power and heat
systems not capturing waste heat. Also, they have efficiencies of upwards
to eighty or ninety percent at the same time using less fuel to produce
that same energy output.
Senate cosponsors are Senators Jim Jeffords (R-VT) and Hillary Rodham
Clinton (D-NY). House sponsor is Rep. Jack Quinn (R-NY).
