The Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) held a briefing on how combined heat and power (CHP) technology can provide critical facilities (e.g. hospitals, wastewater treatment), businesses, institutions, and communities with more resilient and reliable heat and power, while at the same time reducing energy costs and harmful emissions over time. This briefing introduced participants to CHP technology and presented a number of recent case studies in which CHP systems helped communities pull through extreme weather events when the grid went down. Speakers discussed both some of the opportunities and the barriers to deploying more CHP systems.
