CHP the main prime mover in the UK

Two factors affecting the economics of CHP

Two major factors affecting the economics of CHP are the relative cost of fuel (principally natural gas) and the value that can be realised for electricity both for own use and export. This is known as the spark gap (i.e. the difference between the price of electricity and the price of the gas required to generate that electricity).

Energy price trends that are applicable to CHP schemes differ depending upon the size and sector of the scheme. The volatility of energy prices continues to have an impact on the viability of CHP. Due to the long term nature of CHP investments long term trends in the spark gap need to be taken into account.
