Detroit Renewable Power (DRP) is a modern energy-from-waste (EFW) facility that safely processes up to 3,300 tons per day of municipal solid waste (MSW) and converts it into a renewable energy supply of electricity and steam. The electricity is sold to DTE Energy and the steam is sold to Detroit Thermal to heat and cool more than 150 buildings in downtown and midtown Detroit.

DRP is an independent subsidiary of Detroit Renewable Energy, a consortium of renewable-energy generation and distribution companies formed in November 2010 that also includes Detroit Thermal, Detroit Cooling, and Hamtramck Energy Services.
