Department of Energy CHP TAP and USGBC invite you to join a panel of experts to discuss the roles of combined heat and power (CHP) and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) in sustainable and resilient cities. CHP, or cogeneration, is an ideal way to reduce carbon emissions, improve energy efficiency and meet sustainability goals. CHP can also improve community resilience and keep critical infrastructure operational during energy emergencies and natural disasters. LEED for Cities encourages local governments to progress towards a more sustainable future by tracking their energy efficiency and sustainability performance. This session will cover market trends, technologies, and technical resources in addition to highlighting how end-users can earn LEED points with CHP.
