Combined Heat and Power (CHP) is a highly fuel-efficient means of generating electricity and useful heat, in the same process. It is one of the most common forms of energy recovery.

High fuel efficiency results in lower fuel bills and in carbon savings, compared to the generation of heat and power separately, e.g. within a boiler and central power station.

This guide outlines the main benefits of CHP, and describes the opportunities available to businesses that choose to adopt a CHP scheme.
