This report analyses the impact of the Dutch subsidy scheme ?MEP? on the cost-effectiveness of CHP plants. The MEP scheme provides a reward for the CO2 reduction by CHP plants and of-fers therefore an incentive for energy efficient operation.

In 2006 the MEP subsidy is available for CHP plants that started their operation after 1 January 1997. The subsidy will be differentiated based on CHP type and power capacity. Main outcome of the report is a subsidy-advise, which complies with the European Community Guidelines on Aid for Environmental Protection. Based on the subsidy-advise a budget for the CHP MEP scheme has been estimated.
