The U.S. Clean Heat & Power Association (U.S. CHP Association) has praised the Obama Administration for this week’s Executive Order, “Accelerating Investment in Industrial Energy Efficiency,” which calls for a national combined heat and power deployment goal of an additional 40GW by 2020.

USCHPA Executive Director, Jessica Bridges, said “CHP technology can be deployed quickly, cost-effectively and with few geographic restrictions. Establishing this national goal toward greater CHP deployment will significantly advance cleaner energy generation in the U.S., benefit the environment, and help create much-needed manufacturing and industrial jobs.

I applaud the White House for its efforts to support clean power generation through CHP and pledge the combined heat and power industry’s support to help achieve this goal.”

Joe Allen, 2012 USCHPA Chairman and Director of Government Affairs at Caterpillar’s Solar Turbines subsidiary, called the Executive Order a “significant recognition of CHP’s benefits to the American economy by improving industry competitiveness through this clean, efficient, and reliable form of power generation.”
