    Cogeneration must play greater role in EU 2030 climate and energy framework

    By clearly including energy efficiency in the EU's overall climate and energy policy framework with the publication in July of the Energy Efficiency Communication, the European Commission has taken positive steps to highlight the contribution of energy efficiency in its own right towards achieving the EU's security of supply, competitiveness and environmental objectives. COGEN Europe has responded to the Commission Communication with the publication of a Position Paper.

    COGEN Europe Position Paper on Micro-CHP

    Micro-CHP is the state-of-the-art energy supply solution for European homes and small businesses, already delivering today in its journey to the energy system of the future. Putting the cogeneration principle to use for citizens and small businesses creates a new relationship between them and the energy market. The merits of this flexible, controllable, energy efficient technology need to be better recognised through an appropriate policy structure so that it can contribute fully to the EU 2020 objectives and beyond.

Again, more focus is given to the electricity sector. The other recent communication from the Commission on energy technology and innovation does not have any focus on heat.
