105 Benefits of CHP

In the fall of 1998, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) initiated the "CHP Challenge" to double the amount of CHP generating power in the U.S. by 2010.* The benefits estimated by DOE analysts (U.S. Department of Energy, 1998) include net additional energy savings of 1.3 Quads, carbon reductions of 40 Mtc, SO2 reductions of 0.94 million tons, NOx reductions of 0.42 million tons, and economic savings of $5.5 billion.
