CHP Association

Who We Are

CHP Association (CHPA) brings together diverse market interests to promote the growth of clean, efficient local energy generation in the United States. It is a private, non-profit 501(c)6 trade association, originally formed in 1999 to promote the merits of combined heat and power (CHP) and to achieve public policy support for CHP.

The CHP Association documents the benefits of clean heat and power to the public and decision-makers. The association sponsors conferences, workshops, and advocacy events for the benefit of its members and prepares reports and releases to educate the public about clean heat and power. We provide opportunities for our members to network with each other and key government officials.

CHP Association participates in federal agency programs to promote CHP, waste energy recovery, and other forms of clean distributed energy. In particular, we are committed to the CHP Program of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the CHP Partnership Program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

CHP Association’s mission is to increase deployment of combined heat and power and waste energy recovery systems to benefit the environment and the economy. CHP Association’s vision is to be recognized unequivocally as the voice of CHP for the USA.
