About Us

The Mid-Atlantic CHP Technical Assistance Partnership will help organizations to locate, design and implement economically viable distributed energy projects that make appropriate use of their recoverable waste heat.

The Mid-Atlantic CHP Technical Assistance Partnership is based at the Navy Yard, Philadelphia. It was created with funding from the US DOE to promote the use of CHP in the Mid-Atlantic Region. The objectives of the Center are to reduce the perceived risk of CHP to users, foster CHP as a viable technical and economic option for the participating region, and to capitalize on existing regional CHP resources.

Our Services

The Mid-Atlantic CHP Technical Assistance Partnership (Mid-Atlantic CHP TAP) promotes the deployment of integrated systems that provide both electrical generation and thermal energy that can be used to provide heating and/or cooling for buildings or industrial manufacturing applications.

Mid-Atlantic CHP TAP focuses on providing information to all who are interested in CHP technologies or applications. This information, which is available on this website or by contacting Mid-Atlantic CHP TAP directly, includes:

  • Technology and application descriptions
  • Screening tools
  • Case studies
  • State CHP baseline information
  • Project development guidebooks
  • Lists of local resources

In addition, Mid-Atlantic CHP TAP provide technical assistance to individuals involved developing CHP projects and to state agencies involved in promoting or establishing rules affecting CHP. The types of support we provide include:

  • Conducting site surveys and scoping assessments
  • Educating potential owners - explaining options and benefits to those who are not familiar with CHP
  • Assistance in CHP development planning
  • Reviewing proposals and engineering analyses/permit applications
  • Promoting sensible rules and regulations
  • Developing utility interconnect applications and tariffs for stand-by power
  • Evaluating emissions control requirements and permitting process

Please contact Mid-Atlantic CHP TAP directly if you are interested in technical support on a specific project.
