Certification Process for High Efficiency Combined Heat and Power

The Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU) is the appointed body to certify high-efficiency CHP (HE CHP) as set out in SI 298, 299 and 499 of 2009. The process of applying for certification is covered by CRU documents CER/12/125, CER/12/184 and CER/16/153. Periodically the need arises for the issuance of clarification(s) to the HE CHP certification process either on certain technical matters or in response to changes in connected EU or national legislation.

Today 27 October 2017, the CRU is publishing two clarification notes on matters relating to HeCHP assessment and certifications. The CRU wishes to provide clarification to applicants regarding the assessment of heat input into sorption chillers as useful heat for HE CHP and HE CHP Assessments where there are two or more units on a Single Site.

These clarifications should be read in conjunction with CRU documents CER/12/125, CER/12/184 and CER/16/153.
