DECC told policy uncertainty threatening gas CHP


Policy and regulatory risk are serving as important barriers to investment in gas combined heat and power (CHP), industry stakeholders have told the government. On Monday 20 July DECC published a summary of the responses that it had received to its call for evidence on Tackling Non-Financial Barriers to Gas CHP. Organisations told the department that policy uncertainty in the sector had been driven by the government’s decision to withdraw CHP Levy Exemption Certificates and National Grid’s decision to change embedded benefits. But there was also a “general agreement” that the non-financial barriers that were identified in DECC’s original analysis were correct.
