Welcome to Midwest Cogeneration Association
2022 MCA Fall Conference: Exploring Energy Decarbonization and Resiliency Solutions for Your Business and Organization
September 19th @6pm through September 21st @2pm
Today, we are experiencing the effects of climate change and increasing weather disasters that are impacting business operations and our economy. Energy Efficient combined heat and power (CHP), also referred to as cogeneration, provides a cost-effective, near-term decarbonization opportunity to improve our nation’s energy, environmental, and economic future. New opportunities are emerging for recognizing and valuing CHP as energy efficiency, decarbonizing, renewable energy enabling, microgrid, and supply-side energy resource. Network and learn from industry representatives, operators, government agencies, and presenters about challenges, lessons learned, and trending opportunities for CHP market adoption. Timely topics will include decarbonization, incentive programs, federal funding, grid modernization, microgrids, low and zero-carbon fuels (including RNG and hydrogen), new technologies, and valuing CHP’s energy efficiency, reliability, resiliency, and emissions-reducing benefits.
MCA works to improve general business conditions of the industry. The non-profit organization provides pertinent information for its members to conduct research, publish reports, and hold various seminars and workshops with the goal to advance the concept of cogeneration throughout the Midwest. MCA was incorporated in 1984 and covers the states of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio and Wisconsin. The group has held annual regional conferences since 1985.
