The annual CHPA Awards usually offer some clues to the status of the combined heat and power market in Britain. This year saw a new emphasis on CHP-based district heating schemes serving mainly public sector homes, as Steve Hodgson reports.
The CHPA has published its joint response to the National Grid policy paper and consultation on the Embedded Benefits regime.
The CHPA published its response to DECC's Consultation on the Implementation of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive on metering and billing.
Speaking to COSPP, the Combined Heat and Power Association (CHPA) says the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) on its own will not be enough to increase the amount of CHP in the country, and will only work if a wider suite of policies are enacted.
The CHPA has prepared a draft response to DECC's Consultation on the Implementation of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive on metering and billing, and would welcome members' comments by close of business on Thursday 20 February 2014.
The CHPA has published its response to this consultation on the Government’s approach to allocation of Contracts for Difference (CfD).
Together with the CHPA, PRASEG (All-Party Parliamentary Renewable and Sustainable Energy Group) will be holding a seminar in the House of Commons to discuss how heat networks can be best developed to deliver local supplies of secure, affordable and low carbon heat and what role local authorities and communities can play in this.
