Maximising CHPQA Success: Stay Ahead with NFU Energy’s Early Data Review

The Combined Heat and Power Quality Assurance (CHPQA) annual certification process is a crucial requirement for all Responsible Persons (RPs) operating Combined Heat and Power (CHP) generators in CHPQA. To ensure a smooth and efficient certification process, it’s essential for RPs to compile energy data, assess scheme performance, and submit the necessary figures to CHPQA for validation. At NFU Energy, we understand the challenges faced by CHP operators in preparing their CHPQA data and meeting the critical deadlines.

The Importance of Timely Certification

Annual certification is a time-sensitive process; submissions must be made by 31 March each year. This allows the CHPQA Administrator to validate the forms and issue a new certificate in time for the SOS Certificate to be maintained by BEIS, by the end of June deadline. NFU Energy takes pride in assisting operators in meeting their annual obligations efficiently. We undertake all the necessary work on behalf of our clients, ensuring a seamless certification process.

Stay Ahead with Early Data Review

Gathering and reviewing 12 months' worth of CHP data can be an involved and daunting task, especially with the looming March deadline. To alleviate this pressure and enhance the certification process, NFU Energy is proactively working with operators to review as much data as possible in advance. For many of our clients, we have already begun the meter data review for January - June 2023.

Benefits of Early Data Review

Engaging in an early data review provides several advantages for CHP operators:

  • Identifying metering faults: Early data review allows us to promptly identify any issues with metering, enabling timely troubleshooting and maintenance.
  • Optimising CHP performance: By analysing CHP performance data in advance, we can alert you if efficiency improvements may be required to help you meet the scheme's annual performance threshold.
  • Reduced workload: Collating data in advance means a smaller workload for you in the New Year, and less pressure, against the backdrop of a looming deadline.

Our Commitment to Excellence

At NFU Energy, we take pride in our dedication to our clients' success. We strive to ensure our clients' best interests are always at the forefront of our service. Our experienced team is equipped with the knowledge and expertise to navigate the complexities of the CHPQA process, and we are committed to ensuring a seamless certification experience for all our clients.

To conclude, CHPQA certification is a vital responsibility for CHP operators, and early data review can significantly streamline the process. With NFU Energy's support, you can confidently prepare for the next critical deadline in March 2024 and beyond. Trust us to help you meet all your annual obligations, optimise CHP performance, and maintain compliance with CHPQA requirements. Stay ahead with NFU Energy and ensure your CHP scheme operates at its best while contributing to a more sustainable future.
