EPA CHP Partnership
Through the CHP Partnership, EPA’s CHP team works with CHP stakeholders to reduce air pollution and water usage associated with electric power generation by increasing the use of CHP. EPA’s goal is to remove policy barriers and to facilitate the development of new projects in the United States and its territories by promoting the economic, environmental, and reliability benefits of CHP. We provide tools, policy information, and other resources to energy users; the CHP industry; clean air officials; and other clean energy stakeholders.
Clean Energy Business Network
The CEBN is a group of 3,000+ business leaders working in every aspect of the clean energy economy. Our members are diverse, but predominantly C-suite executives of small- to medium-size businesses across the U.S. The CEBN works to inform and engage business leaders in energy policy issues, increase public and policymaker awareness of clean energy solutions, and offer resources to help members address common business challenges. Started in 2009 by The Pew Charitable Trusts, the CEBN is now an independent initiative of the Business Council for Sustainable Energy, a coalition of companies and trade associations from the energy efficiency, natural gas and renewable energy sectors.
CHP Association (CHPA) brings together diverse market interests to promote the growth of clean, efficient local energy generation in the United States. It is a private, non-profit 501(c)6 trade association, originally formed in 1999 to promote the merits of combined heat and power (CHP) and to achieve public policy support for CHP.
The CHP Association documents the benefits of clean heat and power to the public and decision-makers. The association sponsors conferences, workshops, and advocacy events for the benefit of its members and prepares reports and releases to educate the public about clean heat and power. We provide opportunities for our members to network with each other and key government officials.
CHP Association participates in federal agency programs to promote CHP, waste energy recovery, and other forms of clean distributed energy. In particular, we are committed to the CHP Program of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the CHP Partnership Program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
CHP Association’s mission is to increase deployment of combined heat and power and waste energy recovery systems to benefit the environment and the economy. CHP Association’s vision is to be recognized unequivocally as the voice of CHP for the USA.
Alliance for Industrial Efficiency
The Alliance for Industrial Efficiency is a growing coalition of business, labor, non-profit organizations, and educational institutions that educate the public and decision-makers and advocate for policies that increase U.S. manufacturing competitiveness through industrial energy efficiency, especially the use of Combined Heat and Power (CHP) and Waste Heat to Power (WHP). CHP and WHP could provide 20 percent of America’s electricity while cutting emissions and slashing energy costs for U.S. manufacturers. To date, the Alliance has focused on improving financing for CHP and WHP, increasing demand for CHP and WHP, and incorporating CHP and WHP in the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Air Act rules.
The Alliance leads its members’ education and lobbying activities with Congress and the Administration, develops coordinated communications strategies, and mobilizes members and affiliates to support expanded awareness of industrial efficiency.
