VDMA: First tender for combined heat and power plants: Tender volume too low, little competition for the different plant sizes
The Federal Network Agency (BNetzA) has announced the results of the first call for tenders for combined heat and power plant (CHP) technologies with a tender volume of 100 Megawatts (MW).
VDMA: Half speed ahead with renewable power and efficient heat
Now that the Combined Heat and Power and Renewable Energies Amendment Acts have been passed, investors finally know what the statutory framework for 2017 will look like. But the opportunity to pave the way for the use of CHP in the industry through industrial policy has not been taken, making it all the more important to regulate the tender design for CHP systems quickly. The wind power industry had also hoped for clear signals in industrial policy.
CHP and self-generation: Hearing shows willingness to change
The Bundestag’s hearing on the further development of the legal framework for combined heat and power and self-supply took place on November 21 2016. Changes which are necessary due to the EU notification ruling on the Combined Heat and Power Act (CHP) were discussed. The CHP Act has been in force since January 1, 2016, but has not yet taken effect. Furthermore, the agreement with the EU on the EEG levy charge for self-supplying plants was implemented.
Leading trade fair EnergyDecentral strengthens its positioning and focuses on the current topics
With a stronger international character and new formats such as combined heat and power plant servicing, the EnergyDecentral exhibition confirmed its position as the leading trade fair for decentralized energy supply beyond biogas production. As the first specialist trade fair, EnergyDecentral offers information about the possible effects of the upcoming legislation for engine-powered generating plants.
Decentralized energy supply – one of the keys to the energy turnaround
Germany’s climate goals cannot be realized without the great potential for savings that decentralized power and heat generation offer in industry, trade and agriculture.
