Combined heat and power generation (CHP) is an important option for reducing the primary energy consumption. The share of CHP-related electricity production in the EU-12 decreased from 8% to 6% of the total produced electricity. Exceptions to this trend are Denmark and The Netherlands. The increase is mainly stimulated by the energy companies, which invest in CHP for their own risk. Additionally, in Denmark also a number of standard settings are used, especially for district heating.
