The revised UK CHP Development Map has been launched on the Department of Energy & Climate Change CHP Focus website.
The map was originally developed as a tool to assist power station developers consider the opportunities for supplying heat and delivery of combined heat and power (CHP) as required under planning policy. However, it can also be used by both small and large organisations to help identify the locations where the supply of CHP heat would have the greatest potential, and therefore the largest positive environmental impact.
The map includes heat loads across all UK sectors including industrial, commercial, public and domestic. The latest generation of the map offers a number of enhanced features, which include:
• Refined and updated heat load data;
• Greater zoom resolution;
• Improved search functionality such as Radius and Area Search tools;
• Ability to search on local authority level and middle and low level output layers providing greater search resolution.
