Combined Heat and Power

Volume 457: debated on Wednesday 7 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what proportion of electricity is sourced from good quality combined heat and power; and what his target is for 2010. (124638)

In 2005, the latest year for which statistics are available, 7½ per cent. of electricity generated in the United Kingdom came from good quality combined heat and power (CHP) schemes. The target is for 10,000 MWe of good quality CHP capacity to be in place by the end of 2010, but there is no separate target for generation.
