Policy TypeState Energy Plan
State/FederalNH
Policy Administrator/Contact OfficeNew Hampshire Office of Energy and Planning
Policy Initiation Date11/1/2002
Policy SummaryThe legislation that created the New Hampshire Energy Plan (NHEP) focused on six priority areas: demand projections for electricity and natural gas; adequacy of generation, transmission and distribution for both electricity and natural gas in New Hampshire and regional issues that will impact the State; siting requirements for energy facilities; fuel diversity, including renewable and alternative energy resources; energy efficiency and conservation; and the impacts of regional issues on New Hampshire. In addition, the NHEP includes issues related to energy security, and provides information on the State's efforts to manage its own energy use. In Chapters 5 ("New Hampshire's Role in the Region) and 8 ("Fuel Diversity"), distributed generation, including CHP (or cogeneration), is referenced. The NHEP presents energy efficient technologies and clean distributed generation (DG) as important components of a new state and regional planning effort to ensure that system security risks are addressed. The benefits of distributed generation are also discussed in Chapter 8.4.
