Combined Heat & Power Stakeholder Engagement
Stakeholder Engagement Meetings
The Minnesota Department of Commerce was awarded a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) grant to carry out a strategic stakeholder engagement process and develop an Action Plan for combined heat and power (CHP) deployment in Minnesota.
The goal of this project was to explore current barriers and potential solutions to CHP implementation in the state.

Commerce held a series of stakeholder meetings between September and November 2014 to provide information and facilitate discussion on CHP issues involving Minnesota’s regulatory framework, technical and economic potential, and education and training needs. Below are links to resources that were prepared and disseminated as part of the stakeholder engagement process:
