Storage & Containment

Operating a CHP package requires the use of potentially harmful substances, and precautions must be taken, both at the design stage and during operation, to prevent accidental releases. 

There are numerous design and engineering standards and codes of practice for improving levels of safety and reducing the risk to the environment from accidental leaks or spills of hazardous substances. In particular natural gas, Oils & Chemicals are considered.

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.
