Report: Examination of the Future Potential of CHP in Ireland

Last updated: 5 November 2017
The Green Paper on Sustainable Energy commissioned a report from Sustainable Energy Ireland (SEI) to examine the status of combined heat and power (CHP) in light of market liberalisation, technology advances, new fuel sources, extension of the gas grid and financial incentives. This strategy allocates 0.25 Mt CO2 per year saving from the use of CHP by the year 2010. This equates approximately to the installation of an additional 250 Mwe of CHP plant, a tripling of current capacity. The report " An Examination of the Future Potential of CHP in Ireland" was presented to the Minister of State in December 2001 and was subsequently put out to public consultation through February 2002.
