According to the United States Clean Heat & Power Association (USCHPA):

US buildings consume at least 30-50% more energy than necessary to provide adequate indoor environmental quality (IEQ) which can be mitigated by using CHP.

The United States power plants are responsible for:

  • Two-thirds of the nation’s annual sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions
  • One-quarter of the the nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions
  • One-third of the mercury (Hg) emissions
  • One-third of the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions

By capturing the waste heat, CHP can cut emissions by up to half when compared to separate applications.
