Electric Energy Production from High Efficiency Cogeneration – Legislative Changes in Recent Years

The main reason for national support of high efficiency cogeneration is the European Union energy and climate policy focused on increasing efficiency of use of available resources. It is especially important in the context of the “3 × 20%” package which predicts a reduction of greenhouse gasses, growth of energy effectiveness and increase of renewable energy at the level of 20% in 2020. In this sense cogeneration, which is based on saving primary energy through common production of electric energy and heat, is one of the pillars of this strategy. The aim of the article is to analyze and evaluate legal regulations pertaining to high efficiency cogeneration by reference to both European Union law and national legislation. Special attention will be given to the recent legislative changes, especially to the new state aid system for cogeneration and to so-called cogeneration guarantees of origin
