Combined heat and power
from Minister of Energy
The OPA is directed to develop a new standard offer procurement program to procure 150-MW of CHP, to be known as the "Combined Heat and Power Standard Offer Program 2.0" or "CHPSOP 2.0.". CHPSOP 2.0 will maintain the general structure of the previous CHPSOP, with a number of adjustments. These adjustments include, among other things, designing the program for projects that would provide thermal energy to operations in the Target Sectors; differentiating between the Target Sectors using the following categories: (i) Agricultural Industry Projects (which includes greenhouses, other growing operations and food processing facilities), and (ii) District Energy Projects; and specifying sector-specific procurement targets. The OPA is to launch CHPSOP 2.0’s first application window with a target date of Nov. 3, 2014 for a total capacity of 100MW. CHPSOP 2.0's second window is to be launched in 2015, to procure the balance of the 150MW.
