Energy & Sustainability Services Webinar Series: Combined Heat & Power Utility — End User Partnerships

November 18, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Some utilities are exploring how investing in combined heat and power (CHP) systems can bring value to customers, communities, and the wider grid in the context of changing utility business models. The traditional utility business model of owning large central power plants is changing with increased penetration of distributed energy resources (DERs). Utility ownership of CHP systems can be a good fit for states and utilities operating within traditional vertically integrated regulatory structures, where utilities can own generation assets. Many of the barriers to customer-owned, behind-the-meter CHP deployment can be avoided through utility owned CHP.

Join our speakers to learn more about how utility – end user partnerships can benefit industry, utilities, and ratepayers alike. Speakers include:

  • Christina Kopitopoulou, Sr. Project Manager, NC Clean Energy Technology Center / U.S. DOE Southeast CHP Technical Assistance Partnership
