CHP figures in Colombian energy plan

Colombia's mining and energy planning unit UPME has revealed its 2013-27 electricity plan, and cogeneration is being considered as one of the means of broadening the country’s energy mix.

The plan includes adding roughly 3.1GW of capacity as well as more than US$2bn in transmission works.

As well as plans for various gas, hydro and coal plants, UPME is also studying two alternative plans to increase renewable generation and diversify Colombia's energy matrix.

One included adding 540 MW of capacity through wind, geothermal and cogeneration, while the other consisted of adding 300MW of wind capacity in northern coastal Guajira department.
