European Commission plans to replace CHP Directive

The European Commission has proposed a new energy efficiency directive to replace the existing Energy Services Directive and the CHP Directive.

The proposed directive would require that European Union (EU) member states establish a national heating and cooling plan for developing the potential for the application of high-efficiency cogeneration and efficient district heating and cooling by 1 January 2014.

The original CHP Directive entered into force in February 2004 and member states have been obliged to begin its implementation since 2006, although due to administrative delays at the committee stage, the directive did not come into force until 6 August 2007.

Under the terms of the directive, EU member states are obliged to produce reports covering their analysis of the state of CHP in their own countries, to promote CHP and show what is being done to promote it, to report on and remove barriers to entry, and to track progress of high-efficiency cogeneration within the energy market.
