How market regulatory framework and policy affected the CHP development in meeting 2010 targets in the UK
The future UK combined heat and power (CHP) uptake depends on the policy and market regulatory framework. Since CHP produces up to 1MT carbon savings per GW power, the UK government recognizes its role in the reduction of carbon emissions. In addition, there are the potential contributions to the security, diversity, and competitiveness of energy supply, and to provide support in a competitive manufacturing industry for sustainable energy technologies in the UK (CHPA, 2006; Defra, 2004). In 2000, the UK government announced a target of achieving at least 10,000 MWe of good quality CHP by 2010 (Defra, 2004). This article will present the existing policy and market regulations for CHP, and discuss how these issues affected CHP policy deployment for meeting 2010 targets. In addition, this article will discuss how the technology innovation, strong combined heat and power policy, and stabilized market regulations can enhance CHP development for future consideration.

Abstract

The future UK combined heat and power (CHP) uptake depends on the policy and market regulatory framework. Since CHP produces up to 1MT carbon savings per GW power, the UK government recognizes its role in the reduction of carbon emissions. In addition, there are the potential contributions to the security, diversity, and competitiveness of energy supply, and to provide support in a competitive manufacturing industry for sustainable energy technologies in the UK (CHPA, 2006; Defra, 2004). In 2000, the UK government announced a target of achieving at least 10,000 MWe of good quality CHP by 2010 (Defra, 2004). This article will present the existing policy and market regulations for CHP, and discuss how these issues affected CHP policy deployment for meeting 2010 targets. In addition, this article will discuss how the technology innovation, strong combined heat and power policy, and stabilized market regulations can enhance CHP development for future consideration.
