Golden Field Office
The Department of Energy?s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Advanced Manufacturing Office seeks to enable the use of combined heat and power (CHP), including waste heat to power and district energy with CHP, as solutions to the energy issues facing our nation. On August 30, 2012, President Barack Obama signed the Executive Order, ?Accelerating Industrial Energy Efficiency,? promoting American manufacturing by helping to facilitate energy efficiency at industrial facilities. This Executive Order establishes a national goal of deploying 40 gigawatts of new, cost effective CHP in the United States by the end of 2020. The objective of this Funding Opportunity Announcement is to seek applications to establish regional Combined Heat and Power Technical Assistance Partnerships (CHP TAPs) which will be a critical component of the Presidential initiative. These CHP TAPs will provide the essential support to continue to develop the ma
rket for CHP ? this includes education and outreach and technical assistance to a variety of stakeholders including end-users (commercial, industrial, institutional and more), state decision makers, electric and gas utilities, trade associations and non-profit organizations. This assistance will include evaluating the economic, energy, reliability and environmental value of proposed systems. The CHP TAPs will represent multi-state regions that will be CHP experts who provide fact-based, un-biased information on CHP, including technologies, project development, project financing, local electric and natural gas utilities interfaces, and related state best practice policies. They will be vendor, fuel, and technology neutral.
