Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (“DOE”) issued a revised Funding Opportunity Announcement (“FOA”) of up to $40 million to speed up the development and implementation of combined heat and power (“CHP”) technologies. The FOA covers large, medium, and small CHP systems and aims to finance research, development, and demonstration of stationary CHP systems that focus on increasing efficiency and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The FOA  intends to facilitate development of technologies that are highly efficient, capable of meeting future emissions requirements, and able to substitute for or reduce natural gas usage. The deadline for applications has been extended to July 21, 2009. For more information on this FOA, go to
