Commercial, Institutional and Industrial Clients

CEERE helps commercial, institutional and industrial clients to reduce their energy consumption and operating costs through the following programs:

Industrial Assessment Center
We are no longer taking on new assessments. Find contact info for the other centers in the Northeast region on the Department of Energy's website.

Combined Heat and Power
Combined heat and power (CHP), also known as cogeneration, is a highly efficient approach to generating electric power and useful thermal energy from a single fuel at the point of use.

As partners in the U.S. Department of Energy's New York-New Jersey CHP Technical Assistance Partnership, we offer no-cost screenings, technical assistance, economic analysis, and expert advice to help determine if CHP is a good fit for sites throughout New York and New Jersey. Learn more on the NY-NJ CHP Technical Assistance Partnership site.

Over the past 15 years, we have supported the successful installation of many CHP systems in Massachusetts. We currently offer no-cost assistance with CHP in Massachusetts on a case by case basis. Contact us for more information.

For assistance with CHP in other New England states, contact the New England CHP Technical Assistance Partnership.

Massachusetts Energy Efficiency Partnership
MAEEP is a training program that supports deployment of energy efficiency technologies and tools to the industrial, commercial, institutional and public sectors by offering low cost technical training workshops in Massachusetts. A new MAAEP website is in development. In the meantime, see upcoming training under News and Highlights on our homepage.
