UK CHPA welcomes Scotland’s energy generation plans

The Combined Heat and Power Association (CHPA) has signaled its approval of Scotland’s commitment to maximize efficiency in energy generation via the capture of waste heat and its support for the creation of district heating networks.

The industry body’s comments follow the launch of Scotland’s ‘2020 Routemap for Renewable Energy in Scotland’, which has outlined plans for the country to achieve a 100% renewable energy supply by 2020.

Scotland has prioritised renewable generation in the routemap, with a strong focus on the use of biomass resources.

One low-cost option the initiative supports is the capture of waste heat from power generation. It proposes to extend this further to cover power from renewable sources such as biomass and waste.

The routemap also identifies that current incentives are driving large-scale biomass electricity schemes rather than using biomass through the highly efficient method of CHP and it says that market mechanisms must be changed to deliver the right level of support to boost CHP production.
