The article reports that the guidance on the legal definition of cogeneration plants from the European Court of Justice will help energy regulators make decisions about their sites and capacities. In a case involving Swedish plant operator Gavle Kraftvarme, the court made two precedent-setting rulings. One ruling offered guidance on whether a plant should be classified as an incineration plant or a co-incineration plant and another provided guidance on boilers.
