Combined Heat and Power France: The European Cogeneration Review
Posted by on 2004-06-19 05:20:01
contributed by 2

This latest Review, in a series of successful publications on the national situations for cogeneration in EU countries, takes stock of the development, current situation and prospects of cogeneration in France. It tracks the many regulatory, socio-economic and political changes that are affecting the market for cogeneration, taking into account the impacts of European energy market liberalisation, increased pressure to meet Kyoto Protocol targets and the European quest for a secure, sustainable supply of energy.

The French review includes updated statistical data on the cogeneration sector, provides electricity and gas prices, describes the national regulatory framework and the impacts of energy market liberalisation, analyses electricity grid issues, assesses support schemes and barriers, and concludes with recommendations and a ranking of the national market for cogeneration against a number of criteria.

Since the rapid growth of cogeneration in the 1990s, the French market has been dormant. Now that the regulatory framework has been fully established, many uncertainties have been lifted. In order to take advantage of the opportunities, it is essential to grasp the specific issues relating to the French cogeneration sector and amongst these notably:

  • The links between EDF and the energy regulators
  • The complex remuneration system, based on long term purchase contracts
  • The key importance of the natural gas reference price.

    Members can order this latest report now for free. It will be available to non members from the 18th August at a price of €80. Previous reports include Greece, Ireland and Spain. Forthcoming reports will include UK, Denmark and the Netherlands. Information and orders of the European Cogeneration Review:

    CHP, Combined Heat and Power, or cogeneration is the simultaneous production of heat and electricity. This proven technology produces around 10% of Europe’s electricity and heat requirements and has a significant growth potential, which will lead to an improved environment and greater economic competitiveness. It is a highly efficient energy solution that delivers substantial reductions in greenhouse gases and other pollutants and is the single largest solution to meeting the Kyoto Protocol on climate change for Europe.

    COGEN Europe is Europe’s umbrella organisation representing the interests of the cogeneration industry, users of the technology and promoting its benefits in the EU and the wider Europe. The association is backed by the key players in the industry including gas and electricity companies, ESCOs, equipment suppliers, consultancies, national promotion organisations, financial and other service companies.
