1 Combined Heat and Power as a Cost-effective GHG Mitigation Strategy Kim Crossman U.S. EPA CHP Partnership Presented to the 2006 Fuel Ethanol Workshop & Expo June 22, 2006

2 EPA and Energy: GHG Reductions Voluntary Programs –Climate Leaders –Energy Star –Green Power Partnership, CHP Partnership –Methane/High-GWP Programs Measurement Tools Defining Leadership –Climate Leaders Inventory Protocol, IMP –Energy Star Benchmarking Tool for EE –Green Power Partnership Benchmark –Energy Star CHP Awards and Certificates Clean Energy Policy Outreach –EPA Clean Energy/Environment State Partnership –Utility Commission Technical Assistance

3 The EPA CHP Partnership is a voluntary program that seeks to reduce the environmental impact of power generation by fostering the use of highly-efficient CHP In the past 4 years, the CHPP has helped Partners put into operation more than 160 CHP projects representing 3,460 MW of capacity. Provides annual GHG emissions reductions equal to emissions of 1.6 million cars. EPA & Combined Heat and Power

4 Environmental Benefits of CHP- CO2

5 CHP: Fossil and Renewably Fueled CHP Efficient Clean Reliable Fossil Fueled Additional Drivers: Expanded Renewable Portfolio Standards Energy Efficiency Credits (EEC) Federal/State grants, tax incentives Renewably Fueled Additional Drivers: Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS) Renewable Energy Credits (REC) State grants, loans, tax credits

6 What Can CHP Offer a Manufacturer? Increased energy efficiency of production Energy cost savings Reliable electricity, steam and chilled water generation on-site Hedge against unstable energy costs Improved competitiveness Reduced greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental benefits Enhanced green image

7 What We Can Do for You Education & Outreach Public Recognition Direct Project Assistance Facilitate CHP Projects through: –Identification –Development –Implementation –Recognition

8 To Access the Services and Tools of the EPA CHP Partnership: Contact: Kim Crossman Team Leader U.S. EPA Combined Heat and Power Partnership ph.: (202) fax: (202)
