Combined Heat and Power Partnership
Vintage of Awards
As of 2004, awards are dated with the calendar year in which they are evaluated and awarded by EPA. That is, most awards are dated with the current calendar year. Because awards recognize contemporary performance, it is required that data submitted with the applications cover periods within the 14 months preceding the application.
ENERGY STAR® CHP Award
EPA awards the ENERGY STAR® CHP Award to leaders who increase the nation's electric generation efficiency through the development of highly efficient combined heat and power (CHP) projects.
The ENERGY STAR CHP Award recognizes projects that require at least 10 percent less fuel than state-of-the-art separate heat and power generation.
Additional information and application materials are available on the CHP Awards page.

CHP Partners' Certificate of Greenhouse Gas Reduction
Partners commit to reporting any CHP-related projects on an annual basis. Any CHP projects completed in the previous calendar year will be included in an Annual Certificate of Greenhouse Gas Reduction sent out to all partners annually. The Annual Certificate of Greenhouse Gas Reduction is a frameable, color certificate that shows the carbon reductions associated with all of the Partners' projects, as well as the equivalent benefits in terms of car emissions avoided. Partners can use this certificate for public relations purposes, to promote the environmental benefits of their work to external stakeholders, or to publicize the benefits of their work in their annual reports or corporate environmental sustainability reports. Report your data here!
