Three recent and important regulatory changes have improved the permitting ease of combined heat and power: the revi¬sion of the PSD tailoring rule, implementation of the Boiler MACT rule, and the proposed Clean Power Plan (CPP).  Robynn will explore how, together, these regulations achieve making Combined Heat and Power (CHP) plants a very attractive alternative to large, traditional utility plants.
