The Heat is Power Association

The Heat is Power Association (HiP) is the trade association for the waste heat to power (WHP) industry. HiP educates decision makers about clean energy and cost savings benefits of WHP and advocates for policies that provide tax parity and a level playing field  with other renewable energy resources for WHP investment, development and deployment.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, there is an opportunity to produce 15GW of power from waste heat.

HiP works collaboratively with other organizations to carry the message about the benefits of making industry and commercial enterprises more efficient and sustainable and promote net zero-emission goals.

Our Priorities

HiP confers with stakeholders including state and federal officials on the technical and economic aspects of WHP and progress made by the industry in meeting clean energy goals. HiP develops essential resources such as whitepapers, databases, and webinars to inform the public on benefits and applicability of WHP as a zero-emission energy resource.

HiP advocates for policies that provide parity for WHP with other sources of renewable energy. We frequently recommend language, evaluate, and comment on proposed policy, and write letters of support and appreciation for legislation that promotes WHP technology and defines WHP as a renewable energy resource.

HiP has promoted recognition of WHP as a renewable energy and energy efficiency resource. In January 2021, Congress recognized WHP as a renewable energy resource and granted a 26% ITC to the range of WHP technologies. WHP is also considered a renewable energy resource in seventeen state renewable portfolio standards and an efficiency resource in four energy efficiency resource standards.
