In a move that had been in the works for a while, the U.S. Department of Energy recently announced that its Clean Energy Application Centers have been rebranded as CHP Technical Assistance Partnerships, or CHP TAPs.
>The CHP TAPs maintain the same regional offices that existed under the former Clean Energy Application Centers:
- Pacific (California, Nevada);
- Southwest (Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah, Wyoming);
- Northwest (Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington);
- Midwest (Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota);
- Southeast (Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee);
- Mid-Atlantic (Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia); and
- Northeast (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont).
With the new energy in these programs, now is the time to take advantage of the expertise offered by the Department of Energy and its CHP TAPs. Industrial users, municipalities, hospitals, college campuses and other large users of energy need to review and understand the significant benefits of CHP, district energy and waste heat capture technologies.<
