    CAPTURED WASTE HEAT CAN REPLACE OLD COAL

    Coal Retirements and the CHP Investment Opportunity

    Anna Chittum, September 19, 2012 (American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy)

    “The next two decades will see substantial changes in the way electricity is generated in the United States. As coal loses favor to natural gas and other alternatives, utilities will retire a significant portion of their coal fleet and invest substantially in other energy resources around the country…

    “Energy efficiency, and combined heat and power (CHP) in particular, represents significant near-term opportunities to make highly cost-effective investments in new energy resources that can more cleanly and efficiently meet the nation’s demand for electricity.”

    “…[Coal Retirements and the CHP Investment Opportunity] targets 12 U.S. states and ascertains the likely amount of coal-fired electric capacity to be retired in the near term plus the potential for CHP to meet some of that lost capacity…

    “It finds that, while CHP is not positioned to fully replace the lost capacity, it can play a substantial role in meeting these needs. Two of the states targeted could replace 100 percent of their lost capacity, and two others could replace over half. This report also finds, however, that most of the states that are facing higher levels of coal retirement do not have most of the critical policies in place that yield a healthy investment environment for CHP…”
