    High-efficiency CHP to help deliver much-needed network services to electricity system

    To address the challenges of a high level of intermittent renewables in the electricity network, the design of network services and related markets must allow high efficiency market actors to participate. Incorporating these actors enables the network to fully harness the best resources currently available. In addition, the market design should promote high efficiency as part of service provision, as clearly set out in the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) and Third Energy Market Liberalisation package.

    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.
