Consultation description

This consultation seeks views on proposals to revise the certification criteria for biomass, bioliquid, biogas and waste-fuelled combined heat and power (CHP) schemes in the CHP quality assurance (CHPQA) Standard and Guidance Note 44.

The proposals will affect operators and developers of renewable CHP schemes. Their views, and the views of others, are invited on the proposals and on the modified CHPQA Standard and Guidance Documents 14 and 44 below. It would be most helpful if your consultation response provided answers to the questions set out in the consultation document, along with any supporting evidence.

Views are also requested on two additional questions in the supplementary questions document. These additional questions relate to a possible alternative grandfathering approach. Consultees are requested to provide views on this alternative approach in addition to providing views on the grandfathering approach outlined in the consultation document. The deadline for responses has been extended to 8 March to allow time for these two additional questions to be considered. Responses to the questions in both the consultation document and supplementary questions document are requested by this date.
