With strong support from Governor John Kasich, the Ohio legislature approved a measure that allows waste energy recovery to qualify as a clean resource within the state’s renewable portfolio standard or within the state’s efficiency standard. The legislation, moreover, places fuel-fired CHP within the efficiency standard.

Both moves will enable such projects to sell power in Ohio’s electricity market. The Republican governor during the debates often spoke about how efficient CHP and clean waste energy recovery can reduce the costs and increase the productivity of Ohio’s industries.
