Conclusion
CHP has long been demonstrated as
an efficient and economical technology
across a variety of industry sectors. More
recently, it has proven significant facility
resilience benefits. The Department
of Energy (DOE) has been leading the
effort to promote the adoption of CHP
at critical infrastructure to improve
facility resilience and reduce operating
costs. The most recent effort is DOE's

Combined Heat and Power for Resiliency
Accelerator7. The accelerator is working
with utilities, communities, states and a
variety of other stakeholders to identify
opportunities for greater deployment of
CHP at critical infrastructure. In addition
to the resiliency accelerator, the DOE's
CHP Deployment program has set of
CHP Technical Assistance Partnership
(TAP) regions across the United States8.
The CHP TAPs are available to work
with end-users to determine if CHP is
a good fit for their facility, as well as
work with key stakeholders to inform
them on opportunities for CHP across
different industries. Those interested
in assessing CHP for their facility
should contact a CHP TAP at www.
energy.gov/eere/amo/chp-technicalassistance-partnerships-chp-taps. APGA
and HARC Research recently held a
webinar on this topic. You can view a
recording at www.apga.org/webinars.

5 Assuming a 5,000 kW (5 MW) system at a cost of
$2,000 per kW. Total installed cost is $10 million.
The cost of the black start and switchgear
equipment is about on average $130 kW which
results in a cost of about $650,000. (Sources: DOE
