Combined Heat and Power (CHP) is the simultaneous generation of useable heat and electricity in a single process and is regarded as a highly efficient energy production process. It makes use of the heat produced in electricity generation instead of releasing it into the atmosphere. The heat generated in a CHP plant can be used for many purposes including district heating and displacing industrial heat demand. The increasing use of biomass CHP as a power source will make a contribution to achieving both the renewable electricity and heat sectors.
REFIT3 aims to support the addition of 310MW of biomass technologies including anaerobic digestion (AD) and Combined Heat and Power (CHP).
