What is the Onsite Energy Program?
The Onsite Energy Program is a new initiative to provide technical assistance for industrial facilities and other large energy users to increase the adoption of onsite clean energy technologies.
Technologies include but are not limited to:
- battery storage
- combined heat and power (CHP)
- district energy
- fuel cells
- industrial heat pumps
- renewable fuels
- solar photovoltaics
- solar thermal
- thermal storage
- wind power

Why is Onsite Energy Important?
By generating and storing electricity and heat directly at their own facilities, manufacturers can save money, reduce uncertainty associated with fuel prices, and gain greater control over the availability of clean energy and how it gets integrated into their processes. Many onsite energy technologies save energy and reduce operating costs by increasing efficiency and capturing usable energy that would otherwise be wasted.
Developing clean energy resources onsite can also help decarbonize industry. Clean onsite energy technologies can provide facility owners across the industrial sector with a practical option to reduce their emissions and dependence on fossil fuels, by generating electricity and heat from flexible, reliable, and affordable energy resources.
