The prestigious Combined Heat and Power Association Awards are now open for entries.
A new Energy Efficiency Directive proposed by the European Commission looks to promote greater efficiency in energy generation by making CHP with district heating the default option.
Combined Heat and Power (CHP) offers the “best of both worlds”: a proven efficiency technology that accelerates the integration of renewable energy, according to a report from the International Energy Agency (IEA).
The announcement of the Renewable Heat Incentive today offers fresh impetus for renewable CHP
The CHPA has been actively involved in a campaign to ensure that CHP receives fair treatment under the new Carbon Price Support tax due to be introduced in 2013.
The Government will shortly publish its proposals for Electricity Market Reform (EMR), promising the biggest shake-up of the market since the privatisations of the 1990s.
The Climate Change Committee’s (CCC), Fourth Carbon Budget report, published today, highlights the significant role both district heating and CHP can play in delivering a low-carbon energy system through the 2020s and beyond.
The Combined Heat and Power Association (CHPA) is today able to publically announce the winners of the CHPA Awards for 2010.
Addressing Integrated Energy 2010, the Combined Heat and Power Association’s annual conference, Minister of State for Energy and Climate Change, Greg Barker MP, today outlined a robust commitment to help unlock the potential of local, distributed energy, across the UK.
A new European Commission energy strategy for the period to 2020, launched today, places energy efficiency at the top of the list of its five priorities. The key role combined heat and power, alongside district heating and cooling, in helping deliver against its aims is also made explicitly clear.
A new guide on CHP and district heating, being launched today, is set to become the ‘how to manual’ for community groups, councils and developers, interested in generating their own energy and slashing bills in the process.
The Combined Heat and Power Association (CHPA) today welcomed the announcements confirming delivery of a Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) by Government. Confirmation that the policy will proceed is of crucial importance, helping to ensure that low-carbon heat supply makes a major contribution to the UK’s renewables target and the decarbonisation of the UK energy economy.
