Bridgestone Associates Joins US EPA CHP Partnership

Bridgestone Associates has joined the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Partnership. The partnership works with CHP developers, equipment suppliers, end-users and other stakeholders to promote the development of CHP in the US.

Bridgestone Associates President Martin Anderson said: “Bridgestone Associates is very active in the technical, economic and environmental evaluation and design of combined heat and power plants for clients throughout the US and around the world.

“CHP may be installed on a standalone basis to provide energy users with lower-cost energy and reduced total emissions or as part of a microgrid to provide resiliency. With its inherent efficiency, CHP can significantly reduce the use of fossil fuels, lower emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants, and reduce water use. Promoting CHP and these goals is the purpose of the CHP Partnership, and we are pleased to have been invited to join and to participate in furthering these objectives.”

Bridgestone Associates is a 28-year-old Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, US-based energy consulting and development company focused on the evaluation, development, financing, design, construction and operations of renewables, combined heat and power and independent power (IPP) energy production facilities and efficient use of energy. The company provides these services to developers and owners of power-generating and other energy-related projects, and to commercial, industrial and institutional energy users worldwide.

Through the CHP Partnership, EPA’s CHP team works with CHP stakeholders to reduce air pollution and water usage associated with electric power generation by increasing the use of CHP. EPA’s goal is to remove policy barriers and to facilitate the development of new projects in the US and its territories by promoting the economic, environmental, and reliability benefits of CHP. The agency provides tools, policy information and other resources to energy users, the CHP industry, lean air officials, and other clean energy stakeholders.
