Join us for the Standby Rates Best Practices for CHP Webinar!
Friday, May 14, 2021 from 12:00pm to 1:00pm
We hope you will join the Great Plains Institute on Friday, May 14 for a webinar to discuss the release of a new GPI whitepaper on standby rates best practices for CHP. The presenters for this webinar will be Jamie Scripps of Hunterston Consulting LLC and Carl Linvill of the Regulatory Assistance Project.
Building on previous research and its strong history of supporting CHP policy work in the Midwest, the Great Plains Institute (GPI) recognized that while best practices in standby rates had begun to emerge, work was needed to further define and test these emerging recommended practices with interested stakeholders such as regulators, potential CHP users, developers, technical experts, and utilities. In June 2020, GPI launched a survey and conducted follow-up interviews requesting feedback on best practices in standby rates for CHP. The new whitepaper presents the results of this research along with recommended best practices and suggestions for additional investigation and discussion.
*The webinar will take place from 12:00pm – 1:00pm CT. Those who are interested in further discussion can stay on and the speakers will take additional questions until 1:30pm.
