Combined Heat and Power

Volume 506: debated on Wednesday 3 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change how many micro-combined heat and power installations he expects to participate in the feed-in tariff scheme. (319793)

A microCHP “pilot”—for installations with an electrical capacity of 2kW or less—will be included as part of the feed-in tariff scheme and will provide support for the uptake of up to 30,000 domestic scale microCHP installations. Because the industry is yet to become established we will review the support level as soon as 12,000 installations are reached, which we expect to be (based on industry projections) sometime in mid-2012.
