The European Commission has approved a €5 billion (£4.3bn) Polish support scheme for co-generated electricity with surcharge reductions for large energy users.

The scheme, with an annual budget of €500 million (£431m), will support combined heat and power (CHP) installations connected to the district heating networks in Poland and run until December 2028.

 

The support will be granted to new and refurbished as well as existing CHP plants and will be open to generators in other member states.

 

The scheme is financed through a surcharge levied on final electricity consumers, based on their power usage but the government wants to lower the financial burden on certain energy intensive users, which would benefit from a reduced CHP surcharge.
