End Further Info End Preamble Start Supplemental Information


The following proposed collection of information has been sent to OMB for clearance:

Collection Title: U.S. Department of Energy/Combined Heat and Power Registry

Type of Review: New collection.

OMB Number: None.

Type of Respondents: Individuals, Businesses, State and Local Governments.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,000.

Estimated Total Burden Hours: 500.

Frequency of Response: One time only.


DOE plans to publicize widely the existence of the registry through it's Regional Support Offices, the CHP website, meetings, conferences and the like, and through its relationship with CHP organizations. Due to the recent high level of interest in CHP, DOE expects that many CHP installers, individuals, utilities, governments, and businesses will wish to register their CHP systems in order to gain recognition on the CHP webpage and also be potentially eligible for an award. Registration would take place electronically (a paper form would be available upon request) by responding to a series of very brief questions. If a system met the established criteria, a CHP certificate would be sent to the facility. Registration would take place one time only. DOE plans to aggregate the data and generate reports detailing the geographic distribution of systems and among other things, the sizes and types of systems. This data collection will assist DOE in its management of and planning for the continued success of the CHP initiative.
