DG-CHP Market Development in New York Hospitals(ST8603-1)

Energy and Environmental Analysis, Inc.


Hospitals have been identified as a high-priority sector for CHP market penetration on a national basis, and also in the Northeast region. NYS has numerous hospitals that could serve as CHP host sites, and NYSERDA’s CHP Demonstration portfolio has several hospital projects (indicating an initial foothold for CHP in hospitals in NYS). Due to regulations from the Department of Health that are unique to life safety activities at hospitals, CHP siting and permitting is more-complex and “sector-specific” for hospitals.

Project Description

The goal of this project is to develop a guidebook and supporting materials that explain the role and benefits of CHP in hospitals. It will address the business case for CHP, appropriate technologies and operating scenarios, steps for feasibility studies and implementation, siting and permitting, regulatory requirements, financing, and other details. The contractor will conduct a series of workshops to disseminate the information to the appropriate audience.


Hospitals will benefit from information regarding availability of innovative financing that may be available to any CHP host site, as well as special financing that may be available exclusively for hospitals.
