CHP supplement

In addition to affordable loans and investment grants, operators of CHP systems in Germany can also benefit from remuneration for the power they generate on-site. The basis for this is the subsidy according to the German CHP Act (KWK-Gesetz or KWKG). The CHP supplement refers to additional remuneration for all of the power generated. The level of the CHP supplement and the duration of payments for the power generated depend on when the CHP system was taken into continuous operation.
