Industrial Efficiency in the States

By producing both heat and power from a single fuel source, combined heat and power (CHP) has double the efficiency of central station power generation. Waste heat to power (WHP) captures waste heat that would typically be vented from an industrial facility and uses it to make electricity with no additional combustion or incremental emissions. Both CHP and WHP dramatically lower energy use, emissions, and cost.

The data presented here provide a look at how CHP and WHP are being used in states, policies that support industrial energy efficiency, and ways these technologies can improve electricity reliability. 

Pew is working to increase deployment of industrial energy efficiency systems for their resiliency and their economic and environmental benefits.
