Resources

Heat is Power is the only trade association specifically for the waste heat to power industry.  We are a resource for our member companies, policy makers, regulators, other trade associations, and all those who are interested in waste heat to power.

We welcome your contributions!  Please contact us with questions, suggestions, or other resources you may have discovered on waste heat to power for upload to this page.

 

NOTE: New DOE ORNL study reports 15 GW WHP potential in the U.S.

HiP materials developed before April 2015 use the 2012 EPA estimate of 10 GW.
