Heat & Power

picture of farm

Combined Heat and Power (CHP) is the simultaneous generation of useable heat and electricity in a single process and is regarded as a highly efficient energy production process. It makes use of the heat produced in electricity generation instead of releasing it into the atmosphere. The heat generated in a CHP plant can be used for many purposes including district heating and displacing industrial heat demand. The increasing use of biomass CHP as a power source will make a contribution to achieving both the renewable electricity and heat sectors. ​

REFIT3 aims to support the addition of 310MW of biomass technologies including anaerobic digestion (AD) and Combined Heat and Power (CHP).
