Latest UK energy statistics from the Department of Energy and Climate Change reveal the increasing role being played by Combined Heat and Power in the industrial and commercial energy mix, with the proportion of renewable CHP capacity increasing by almost 20 per cent from 2011 to 2012.

Typical payback on CHP is seen as three to five years, with most systems offering a 10-15 year lifecycle. And Discount Energy Purchase Schemes allow users to pay for their CHP system via a metered energy charge that is lower than previous electricity costs.

"Combined heat and power is around twice as efficient as conventional power generation and delivers the cost and carbon savings businesses are desperately seeking," said Ian Hopkins of CHP specialist ENER-G Combined Power.
