DOE's Combined Heat & Power 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:
End User Engagement
Partner with strategic end users to advance technical solutions using CHP as a cost-effective and resilient way to ensure American competitiveness, utilize local fuels, and enhance energy security. CHP TAPs offer fact-based, non-biased engineering support to manufacturing, commercial, institutional and federal facilities and campuses.
Stakeholder Engagement
Engage with strategic stakeholders, including regulators, utilities, and policymakers, to identify and reduce the barriers to using CHP to advance regional efficiency, promote energy independence, and enhance the nation’s resilient grid. CHP TAPs provide fact-based, non-biased education to advance sound CHP programs and policies.
Technical Services
As leading experts in CHP (as well as microgrids, heat to power, and district energy) the CHP TAPs work with sites to screen for CHP opportunities as well as provide advanced services to maximize the economic impact and reduce the risk of CHP from initial screening to installation.
