High efficiency combined heat and power (HE CHP) licence
HE CHP Certification
The CRU is the appointed body to certify High Efficiency CHP (HE CHP) as set out in SI 298, 299 and 499 of 2009. For a CHP generator to become HE CHP certified, it must comply with certain criteria as set out in CRU documents :
The CRU has put in place a standardised process for applications from CHP generators to be assessed by the CRU for certification as HE CHP. The certification process is designed to ensure that the plant meets the high efficiency criteria set out in legislation. The standard process involves the review and assessment of applications from existing plants and new plants that have not been certified previously. HE CHP certificates are based on the annual operational data (12-month operating period). Following certification, HE CHP generators will be subject to ongoing periodic auditing that ensures the robustness of the certification process.
How to Apply
Parties applying for certification must submit a completed application form and provide relevant supporting documentation to the CRU for review and evaluation. The process of applying for certification is covered by CRU documents CER/12/125, CER/12/184, CER/16/153 and CRU20142.
Currently there are no fees applied.
Following certification, HE CHP generators will be subject to ongoing periodic auditing that ensures the robustness of the certification process.
