Packaged Combined Heat and Power

Packaged Combined Heat and Power

Standardized, packaged CHP systems can overcome numerous barriers to CHP installations in commercial, institutional, multifamily, light industrial, and Federal applications by reducing design errors, limiting uncertainty about projected performance, shortening project install time, streamlining permitting, and reducing the overall cost. Partners will validate that installation times and total project costs for pre-engineered, technically-validated packaged CHP systems can be reduced by 20% or more. Partners will also evaluate the integration of new technologies with packaged CHP systems and identify R&D challenges and opportunities around packaged CHP and related technologies.

Get Involved

Better Buildings programs host interactive webinars featuring a variety of topics exploring cost-effective ways to integrate energy savings into their daily building operations. 

CHP for Resiliency

Explore the work of the Combined Heat and Power (CHP) for Resiliency Accelerator to support and expand the consideration of CHP solutions to keep critical infrastructure operational regardless of external events.

Partnership Agreement

Building upon the progress of the Combined Heat and Power (CHP) for Resiliency Accelerator, DOE is initiating the Packaged CHP Accelerator to verify improved project performance, cost, and installation practices across a variety of CHP packaged systems. The overarching goal of the Packaged CHP Accelerator is to research and validate that total project costs and installation times for packaged CHP systems can be reduced by 20% or more, and that expected performance is achieved through the use of pre-engineered, technically validated systems that reduce risk for both the CHP user and supplier.
