Title Key Performance Metrics for Clean Energy Application Centers: Fiscal Year 2011.
Publication Date Apr 2013
Media Count 61p
Personal Author M. Schweitzer
Abstract The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) funds nine Clean Energy Application Centers (CEACs) that promote and assist in transforming the market for Combined Heat and Power (CHP), waste heat to power, and district energy (DE) technologies and concepts throughout the United States. The key services provided by the CEACs are market assessments, education and outreach, and technical assistance. There are eight regional centers that serve specific areas of the country and a separate center operated by the International District Energy Association (IDEA) which supports the regional centers with technical assistance related to district energy and provides education, training, publicity, and outreach about that technology. Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has performed three previous studies of center activities. The first one examined what the centers had done each year from the initiation of the program through fiscal year (FY) 2008; the second one examined center activities for FY 2009; and the third one focused on what was accomplished in FY 2010. The most recent study, documented in this report, examines CEAC activities during FY 2011.
