The article discusses findings of a British government study, which suggested that combined heat and power (CHP) in the country could increase by the end of the decade. According to Graham Meeks, director of sector trade body the Combined Heat and Power Association, a more feasible estimate would be an extra 1GW of CHP capacity by 2010.
