Prince Law Offices, P.C. is proud to announce that it was recently selected by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for entry into the EPA’s Combined Heat and Power Partnership (CHPP) in recognition of its efforts to improve the environmental performance of the United States energy supply system by supporting combined heat and power (CHP).
Combined heat and power (CHP), or cogeneration, is an efficient and clean approach to generating electric power and useful thermal energy from a single fuel source. CHP is used to replace or supplement conventional separate heat and power (SHP) (i.e., central station electricity available via the grid and an onsite boiler or heater). Every CHP application involves the generation of electricity and the recovery of otherwise-wasted thermal energy. Therefore, CHP provides greater energy efficiency and environmental benefits than SHP. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) established the
CHP Partnership as a voluntary program that promotes efficient CHP technologies across the United States. The Partnership
works closely with energy users, the CHP industry, state and local governments, and other clean energy stakeholders to facilitate the development of new projects and to promote their environmental and economic benefits.
