A regional action plan for the promotion of combined heat and power(CHP) has been developed for the Euro-region Neisse-Nisa-Nysa (ERN), a cross-border region covering part of Germany, the Czech Republic and Poland. CHP is well developed in the region but a large technical potential remains to be realised, hampered so far by various barriers. Therefore, this study aims to support regional authorities and stakeholders in the ERN in promoting CHP on regional level. Although national policy and programmes towards promotion of CHP are under development in all three countries, no actions have been undertaken on the local and regional level to implement concrete activities towards the penetration of CHP. This Action Plan is meant to help regional stakeholders to develop regional instruments that will lead to increase of the CHP potential in the region, thereby leading to an improvement both energy efficiency and environmental protection.
