Massachusetts Clean Energy and Climate Plan for 2020

Date Last Updated8/5/2013
Policy TypeState Climate Change Plan
Policy Administrator/Contact OfficeExecutive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs
Policy Initiation Date12/29/2010
Policy SummaryThe Massachusetts Clean Energy and Climate Plan includes a number of existing, expanded, and new policies that may encourage CHP development, including a commitment to invest in all cost-effective energy efficiency opportunities, advanced building energy codes, building energy rating and labeling, "deep" energy efficiency improvements for buildings, a renewable portfolio standard, and a clean energy performance standard. In addition, a policy to concentrate development is expected to make district energy and CHP more feasible.

Massachusetts' participation in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) may also lead to CHP-supportive actions such as loans or grants using public benefit fund resources and measures under its state energy plan.
