Intelligent Energy Europe (IEE) is to drive forward the uptake of combined heat and power technology in Europe as part of the CODE2 project.
The project is funding the IEE to develop 27 member state cogeneration road maps throughout the European Union over the next 30 months.
The plan is aimed at providing national policy-makers with a practical tool to realise their country’s identified cogeneration potential.
The roadmaps are set to improve the policy framework, market conditions and awareness around cogeneration in each EU member state and the research will for the first time specifically include an analysis of potentials of bio-energy CHP and micro-CHP in each of the EU Member States.
Dr Fiona Riddoch, Managing Director of COGEN Europe, said “Cogeneration is an opportunity Europe cannot afford to ignore if it wishes to reach its energy and climate targets. Member States should use the opportunities offered in the EED to put the right frameworks in place and address existing hurdles. CODE2 will help by gathering and sharing best practice examples from successful national approaches.”
