Cogeneration: Association also Supports Mini-Systems
Combined heat and power plants in smaller versions are also logical solutions for the supply of residential and office buildings, or public facilities. The Association supports this opinion — and this year they improved the promotional terms. The subsidies have been raised significantly, primarily in the lower output range, and especially energy-efficient units receive an additional bonus. BAFA President Dr. Arnold Wallraff emphasizes this in a statement from the Federal Office of Economics and Export Control, “The amendment is an important step for climate protection and a successful energy transition. Together with the promotion of CHP-generated electricity according to the Cogeneration Law, the program increases the incentives for using high-efficiency CHP technology even in the lower output ranges.” Applications for the support of mini-CHP systems with an electrical output of up to 20 kilowatts can be submitted at the BAFA.
