Environmental Protection Agency Combined Heat and Power Partnership

Combined Heat and Power CHP systems achieve fuel use efficiencies of 60 to 80 percent, compared to a typical SHP efficiency range of 45 to 55 percent. This improvement translates to:

• Energy cost savings from reduced fuel use
• Reduced emissions of greenhouse gases and other regulated air pollutants
• Increased electricity-supply reliability and power quality
• Reduced grid congestion and transmission and distribution losses
