EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)


These Regulations implement Article 16 of Directive 2004/8/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on the promotion of cogeneration based on a useful heat demand in the internal energy market and amending Directive 92/42/EEC (OJ L 52, 21.2.2004, p.50). That Article amended Article 3(1) of Council Directive 92/42/EEC on efficiency requirements for new hot-water boilers fired with liquid or gaseous fuels (OJ L 167, 22.6.1992, p.17) as last amended by Directive 93/68/EEC (OJ L 220, 30.8.1993, p.1). The cogeneration of electricity is more commonly referred to in the United Kingdom as electricity produced from combined heat and power.

Part 1 of Schedule 3 to the Boiler (Efficiency) Regulations 1993 (S.I.1993/3083) ("the 1993 Regulations") sets out the boilers and appliances to which those regulations do not apply. The effect of the amendment made by these Regulations is that the 1993 Regulations will not apply to units that operate in cogeneration mode, where cogeneration means the simultaneous generation in one process of thermal energy and electrical and/or mechanical energy.

A regulatory impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument, as it has no effect on the costs of business.
