On September 13, 2012 the Northeast Midwest Institute (NEMWI) released a report titled: “New Energy for Older Cities: District Energy, Combined Heat and Power, and the Northeast-Midwest Region’s Older Industrial Cities.”
The report includes a detailed study of District Energy (DE) and Combined Heat and Power (CHP) approaches to energy generation and distribution in older industrial cities. It also provides perspective on challenges that face DE and CHP models including: private funding/financing sources, public funding/financing sources and policy limitations.
As part of our commitment to transparency, MCCo gave NEMWI incredible access to both our staff and our member institutions. The goal was to show comparable cities and stakeholders the benefits of DE and CHP models. At the same time, it is helpful in informing our legislators at the city, county, state and federal levels of the challenges that current policy creates for energy providers to deliver reliable energy in an environmentally responsible manner.
