German powergen surge

Germany’s municipal utilities are planning to invest EUR 1.7 billion in combined heat and power plants (CHP) over the next two years. This was a direct consequence of the implementation of the law supporting CHP, which entered the German statute books in April 2002. This level of spending meant that 1.8 GW of generation capacity would be built or modernised. Major CHP plants, with a capacity of more than 50MW, were planned in Cologne, Munich and Frankfurt. The investment would also result in emission savings totalling 2 million metric tonnes of carbon dioxide per year.
