CHP Incentives

Installing CHP plant can lead to significant fuel, cost and emissions savings over conventional, separate forms of power generation and heat-only boilers. However, capital costs are high and payback periods can be long. The UK Government has introduced a number of fiscal and financial support mechanisms designed to improve the economics of low carbon energy generation technologies, including CHP.

Both fossil fuel and renewable fuel fired CHP plant may qualify for support from the following three schemes:

 

Renewable CHP technologies may also qualify for support from the following renewable energy incentive schemes:

 

Fossil fuel fired CHP schemes fuelled by hydrocarbon oils may qualify for support from:

 

Any support received from the above programmes is in addition to the commercial value of any heat and power generated.

The UK CHP Development Tool is the latest version of the map, originally developed as a tool aimed at assisting power station developers consider the opportunities for supplying heat and development of combined heat and power (CHP) as required under planning policy. However, it can also be used by both small and large organisations to help identify the locations where the supply of CHP heat would have the greatest potential, and therefore the largest positive environmental impact.
