1 Changing the way Europe provides heat and electricity for a sustainable future COGEN Europe Date: 30 May Page: 1 Gas Industry Micro CHP workshop Cogeneration Clean – Clever – Competitive – Compelling Dr Fiona Riddoch, Managing Director, COGEN Europe

2 Changing the way Europe provides heat and electricity for a sustainable future COGEN Europe Date: 30 May Page: 2 EU Policy and Legislation Environment Strategic Energy Review Action Plan on Energy Efficiency

3 Changing the way Europe provides heat and electricity for a sustainable future COGEN Europe Date: 30 May Page: 3 Cogeneration in EU policy Important part of the Energy Efficiency agenda –Cogeneration Directive exists to promote cogeneration specifically (CODE) –Micro-chp current Cogeneration Directive, Buildings Directive, ETS, Renewables Directive/ Energy and Climate package ( indirectly), Energy Efficiency Action Plans (various), SET plan, Liberalisation of the Energy Market (EEW, ELEP, Buildings Dir, ETS, ) –Emerging Ecoproducts Design, Green Public Procurement, Fiscal changes

4 Changing the way Europe provides heat and electricity for a sustainable future COGEN Europe Date: 30 May Page: 4 Representation: do you need it? To represent the industries’ needs to the policy makers and politicians at the appropriate time and to drive change. To influence the European process and link to the national process in member states to follow through To use existing policy flow to generate advantage To keep industry aware of emerging changes BUT Requires industry investment OBSERVATION –Stick together wherever possible…the sector has other enemies –There is always more to do : choose the right focus –Timescales are long….so pace is important –There is enough legislation ….we need implementation –Build strong alliances….the competition is tough

5 Changing the way Europe provides heat and electricity for a sustainable future COGEN Europe Date: 30 May Page: 5 Micro cogeneration and EU Legislation Energy Policy »Climate and Energy Package »SET Plan »Renewables Directive »Energy Liberalisation Cogeneration »CHP Directive ( 2004/8/EC ) Emissions Trading Scheme »Directive review ( 2003/87/EC) »Report on application »Monitoring and reporting guidelines Energy Efficiency »Energy Efficiency Action Plan COM(2006)545 »Energy in Buildings (2002/91/EC) »National Energy Efficiency Action plans »Environmental state aid guidelines »Buildings Directive 2008 Eco product design, Green public procurement,

6 Changing the way Europe provides heat and electricity for a sustainable future COGEN Europe Date: 30 May Page: 6 Micro chp industry Take advantage of the positive climate for cogeneration as a whole created by the Directive 2004/08/EC Push the energy efficiency/ security of supply agenda Take advantage of the Eco Product design: start now Come to a voluntary standard for performance measurement for micro-chp but don’t set the limit until there is some history… (Gas Industry Micro CHP workshop?) Co-operate on common design issues and compete on development, product and marketing. Get governments help through energy efficiency policy to create the market

7 Changing the way Europe provides heat and electricity for a sustainable future COGEN Europe Date: 30 May Page: 7 COGEN Europe European Association for the Promotion of Cogeneration Representing the cogeneration sector Setting the agenda Resource and information source for policy makers Vision COGEN Europe working towards the wider use of cogeneration in Europe for a sustainable energy future Structure National Members –National Promotional Organisations - 21 Company Members –Gas and Electricity Utilities –Equipment Manufacturers and Suppliers –Consultancies –Banks, Insurance and End Users
