Renewables are on the rise, but the story isn’t over for combined heat and power (CHP). As long as fossil fuels are in the mix, it provides a solid option for reducing emissions. ICF’s analysis predicts that CHP will continue to be an emissions winner in comparison to other sources until at least 2040.

In this white paper, our experts share the methodology behind their calculations—using real-world case studies as a reference point. Learn how CHP can act as a bridge towards a future with zero carbon emissions, in addition to:

  • CHP’s role in decarbonization and the grid
  • How to measure emissions impacts for a changing grid mix
  • How avoided grid emissions will change over time
  • An estimate of the future emissions impacts of natural gas CHP
