CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen has introduced a bill she says would reduce operating costs for places like hospitals, universities and manufacturing plants by helping them make efficient use of energy that would otherwise be wasted.

The bill addresses regulatory barriers that hamper the use of heat recovery technologies known as combined heat and power and waste heat to power.

Combined heat and power allows a facility to generate its own electricity and thermal energy from a single fuel source. Waste heat to power captures heat from an industrial process and uses it to generate power.

The bill is called the HEAT Act, which stands for Heat Efficiency Through Applied Technology.

“Deploying these efficient energy production technologies will save money, create jobs and reduce pollution,” Shaheen said. “It’s important that rules regarding energy generation keep pace with new advancements in efficient technology.”
