The Heat is Power Association needs you to help advance this important component of our energy future. We advocate for federal, state and local recognition of Waste Heat to Power as a reliable, abundant and emission-free source of electricity. We are working to eliminate barriers to WHP deployment, gain inclusion of WHP as an emission-free resource in state and federal clean energy programs such as renewable portfolio and energy efficiency standards, and obtain equivalent tax treatment for WHP with other sources of emission-free electricity.

The definition of Waste Heat to Power:
Industrial waste heat captured as the byproduct of a process whose primary purpose is not the generation of electricity from a fossil fuel. This specifically includes waste heat on industrial manufacturing facilities, oil and gas processing facilities, pressure let down stations, flared gases, and exhaust heat from landfill gas generation facilities.
