Policy SummaryThe 2013-2017 West Virginia State Energy Plan is the second one developed by the West Virginia Division of Energy. This plan, updated every 5 years, contains recommendations from the Governor and several other sections. Included are three comprehensive reports, developed by West Virginia University and Marshall University, on fossil energy, renewable energy and energy efficiency. There are two recommendations under "Energy Efficiency" that could promote the development of CHP in the state: "Continue providing energy services to West Virginia manufacturers in order to maintain a competitive advantage in energy costs; and provide technical assistance to manufacturing and small businesses using the resources of Projects with Industry Program, Manufacturing Extension Partnership and Industrial Assessment Center." In Marshall University's "Energy Efficiency Policy: Opportunities for West Virginia," a section is devoted to CHP that covers beneficial policies, barriers to CHP deployment, and a regional comparison of CHP policies and barriers. There is a brief reference to woody biomass-fired CHP in the pulp and paper sector in the paper on renewable energy.
