Project Feasibility

The importance of a properly managed and resourced evaluation and development process should not be underestimated. An inadequate approach can give rise to incomplete and misleading results, and may result in decisions (usually against CHP) being taken on the basis of poor information or presentation. Evaulating a project's feasibility follows these steps:

  1. First Steps
  2. Initial Feasibility Study
  3. Feasibility study review
  4. Detailed Feasibility Study
  5. Detailed Feasibility study review
  6. Inplementation & Finance options
  7. Decision Making

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.
