The Heat Efficiency through Applied Technology, or HEAT, Act – legislation that would address regulatory barriers hampering deployment of heat recovery technologies – has been reintroduced by U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-NH.
The measure is designed to encourage manufacturers to implement combined heat and power and waste heat to power systems, which can help reduce energy costs.
Combined heat and power allows a facility to generate its own electricity and thermal energy from a single fuel source. Waste heat to power captures heat from an industrial process and uses that heat to generate power.
