Combined heat and power (CHP)

Although individual products are not listed on the ETL, the scheme does cover CHP equipment

Combined Heat and Power is the simultaneous generation of heat and power (usually electricity) in a single process. CHP Schemes are by their nature bespoke and approval of a given CHP manufacturer or product would not provide sufficient assurance of environmental benefit. With CHP, case by case Certification is needed to ensure support is provided for ‘good quality’ CHP. Certification is achieved using the CHP Quality Assurance programme (CHPQA). Because a certificate is used, no specific products appear on the Energy Technology Product List. Find out more about CHP eligibility criteria and the CHPQA programme.
