Cogeneration Under A Highly Efficient Regime - Guarantees Of Origin

 

Pursuant to Decree-Law 23/2010 of 25 March, in its current wording, Highly Efficient Cogeneration is understood to mean production through cogeneration wherein a primary energy saving (PES) of at least 10% is achieved in relation to the separate production of electricity and heat, as well as small-scale cogeneration and microgeneration resulting in primary energy savings. The PES is calculated on the basis of the methodology set out in the EEGO's Procedures Manual. Small-scale cogeneration is considered to be production at facilities with an installed capacity of less than 1 MW.

Any producer of electricity at highly efficient cogeneration facilities may ask the EEGO to issue guarantees of origin relating to the electricity produced, pursuant to Article 21 of the aforementioned decree-law.
