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 for WHP investment, development and deployment.
WHP uses waste heat from industrial processes to generate electricity with no additional fuel, no combustion, and no incremental emissions. The Heat is Power Association (HiP) seeks inclusion of WHP in federal and state legislation, regulations, and programs as an energy efficient power resource that generates electricity with no additional fuel, combustion or emissions.
HIP Advocates For Policies That Provide Parity For WHP With Other Sources Of Emission Free Power. Hip was successful in obtaining an investment tax credit for whp in 2021 and continues to work with congress to extend the initial timeline from 2 years for this important credit to develop clean energy technology. Hip also recommends language, evaluates, and comments on proposed state and federal policy to define whp as A renewable energy resource, or generally support whp.
Hip works with state and federal policymakers, on the legislative and regulatory fronts, to promote recognition of whp as a renewable source of electric power, as well as an energy efficient resource. WHP is considered a renewable energy resource in (?) states renewable portfolio standards (RPS) and an efficiency resource in (?) energy efficiency resource standards (EERS). HiP advises U.S. federal agencies on the technical and economic aspects of WHP and urges WHP’s recognition in federal regulation and programs. DOE’s most recent evaluation of WHP in the U.S. shows 15 GW potential.
