The latest Digest of UK Energy Statistics (DUKES) for 2013-2014 reveal that the total number of CHP schemes increased to 2066, with 11% of systems now using renewable fuel, compared to 9.5% in 2013

‘It's good to see CHP providing a significant proportion of UK energy production, but the technology remains underexploited,’ said Chris Marsland, Technical Director for ENER-G Combined Power Ltd. ‘There are thousands more organisations that could be saving money and reducing their carbon footprint by using CHP.’
