  • United Kingdom(Great Britain) : UK On-Site Power Investment Increases by 53.3m
    October 17, 2014
    A report by SmartestEnergy's Energy Entrepreneurs has found that manufacturers in the United Kingdom increased their investment in commercial-scale on-site power by an estimated £53.3 million (US$91.4 million) to a total of £164.3 million (US$281.7 million).

    Appetite for solar PV and CHP technologies is increasing as rising energy costs and fears over energy supply motivated a 36 per cent jump in investment.

    Combined Heat and Power saw an increase in schemes in the UK. during 2013 and ranks just behind solar PV in investment terms. A recent DECC-documented increase in the technology took the total number of CHP schemes in the U.K. to more than 2,000.
