(Washington, D.C.-10/25/2005) Ten U.S. companies and institutions will be recognized for exemplary "combined heat and power" (CHP) projects by EPA and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) on Wednesday, Oct. 26. The organizations will be recognized in New York City at the 6th Annual National CHP Roadmap Workshop, an event sponsored by DOE and the CHP industry.

Of the 13 recognized projects, each meet EPA criteria for efficiency and fuel savings and make outstanding contributions to reducing greenhouse gas emissions from energy generation. CHP is an efficient, clean, and reliable approach to generating power and thermal energy from a single fuel source. The 13 projects represent annual savings of over 2.2 million metric tons of carbon equivalent, which is the equivalent of removing the annual greenhouse gas emissions of 366,000 cars.

EPA's CHP Partnership is a voluntary program that supports energy users, industry, state, and local governments, and other stakeholders to develop new projects with well-balanced energy, environmental, and economic benefits through the application of combined heat and power technologies.
