BREAKING: #CHP Could Replace up to 100% of Retiring #Coal Plant Capacity in States across the Country

Combined Heat and Power Proving to be Cheaper, Cleaner, and Faster than Coal Washington, D.C. —Utilities across the country could use highly efficient combined heat and power (CHP ) to more cheaply replace a substantial portion of the coal-fired electric-generating capacity expected to retire in the near term, according to Coal Retirements and the CHP Investment Opportunity , a new report issued today by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE). Today’s report estimates coal retirements in 12 energy-intensive manufacturing states. Coal-dependent states like West Virginia, which expects to see up to 11 percent of its total electric-generating capacity retire, could replace about one-third of that lost generation with utility-owned CHP. Alabama and North Carolina could replace over half of their retiring coal plants with CHP. States with smaller levels of...
