In a Letter to the Editor, the CHPA, UKPIA, CPI and FDF outline the need to support investments in industrial energy efficiency measures to ensure the UK’s long-term competitiveness.
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.
The CHPA today congratulated the 26 local authorities awarded funding to support the development of their heat network projects.
The CHPA today welcomed the Community Energy Strategy's vision for local heat networks to help deliver local, low carbon affordable heating for communities.
Can you help? The communications team is looking for new case studies, diagrams, videos and photos that can be used on the CHPA website to help us explain CHP, district heating and energy services to the general public.
The CHPA has produced a member briefing on the requirements of the Energy Efficiency Directive for metering of buildings with multiple uses and/or tenancies on heating or cooling networks. Under the Directive individual meters are also required where a new connection is made in a new building and where a building undergoes major renovation. All other networks will be subject to a test of technical feasibility and cost effectiveness to determine whether individual meters or heat cost allocators are required. Compliance for these measures is required by 31st December 2016.
Like minded energy management companies came together this week to explore how to optimise the efficiency and economic competitiveness of British business through professional energy management.
As some members may be aware, OFGEM have been holding a number of distributed generation (DG) forums around the country both this year and last. As a result of the output of these forums the Energy Networks Association has set up a Distribution Network Operators and Distributed Generation Technical Forum. This briefing note provides an update from this forum.
Energy efficiency is increasingly recognised as a vital part of the energy future, in order that we meet UK Government's ambitious targets we must seize the opportunity to scale up the work. This conference run by the Energy Institute examines the opportunities available, as well as the barriers that need to be addressed, to accelerate energy efficiency.
