Several energy efficiency groups recently announced their support for a bill, H.R. 6949, that encourages the use of combined heat and power (CHP) and waste heat and power (WHP) systems.
The CHP Support Act promotes CHP and WHP technology by authorizing continued funding for 10 Technical Assistance Partnerships (TAPs) for five years. These programs provide education, screening, and guidance to companies before, during and after installation.
The energy efficiency groups are the Alliance for Industrial Efficiency, the Alliance to Save Energy, the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy and the American Chemistry Council. The groups wrote a letter to members of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce urging them to schedule a hearing this fall to discuss the legislation.
