Cogeneration Under An Efficient Regime – Certificates of Origin

 

Pursuant to Decree-Law 23/2010 of 25 March, in its current wording, Cogeneration under an Efficient Regime is understood to mean production through cogeneration that is not classed as Highly Efficient Cogeneration and where a primary energy saving (PES) is achieved in relation to the separate production of electricity and heat. The PES is calculated on the basis of the methodology set out in the EEGO's Procedures Manual.

Any producer of electricity at cogeneration facilities operating under an efficient regime, when regulated by the special form of the remunerative regime, should ask the EEGO to issue certificates of origin relating to the electricity produced, pursuant to Article 22 of the aforementioned decree-law.
