HC Deb 19 May 2004 vol 421 c985W
Mr. Laurence Robertson

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what steps she is taking to meet the Energy White Paper target of 10GWe of combined heat and power by 2010; and what progress has been made towards the target. [171033]

Mr. Morley

[holding answer 5 May 2004]: I have been asked to reply.

The package of support for CHP is set out in the Government's Strategy for CHP to 2010, which we published on 26 April. This support will significantly help the industry. At the end of 2002, installed CHP capacity stood at 4,742MWe. More up to date data will become available when the annual Digest of UK Energy Statistics (DUKES) is published in the summer by DTI.
