Potential to Reduce Electricity Use through Combined Heat and Power
The graph below displays the technical potential to reduce electricity use through combined generation of heat and power (CHP) for selected states and regions.
Technical potential estimates the potential for application of combined heat and power technologies based on technological considerations alone, expressed as the electricity generation capacity that could avoided because of CHP efficiency (in megawatts).
Technical capacity does not take into account economic factors, and represents an upper bound of what might be possible.
These estimates are from a 2010 ICF International report.
