Ontario's Greens back CHP

The Green Party of Ontario, Canada, has announced a plan to expand CHP targets in order to conserve energy and establish a more efficient power system in the province.

Mike Schreiner, Leader of the Green Party of Ontario, said: “Eliminating waste is essential to increasing efficiency and reducing utility bills. Most large buildings and factories in Ontario use natural gas to provide heat. Instead of allowing waste heat to escape unused, why not use these same molecules to provide two services: heat and electricity?”

The Green Party announced that its energy plan includes the following points:

  • Increasing electrical generation targets and capacity factors for CHP.
  • Prioritizing grid access for affordable CHP projects.
  • Supporting the development of efficient district heating and clean energy recovery projects, which includes amending the Ontario Energy Board Act to allow Ontario’s electric and gas utilities to invest in district energy projects.
