The law's content and purpose



paragraph 1 of this law provides for

cost-benefit analyses should be carried out in some cases to

investigate the potential for the use of high-efficiency cogeneration,

district heating or cooling and waste heat from industry.



The law's purpose is to promote an efficient energy supply.



Words and expressions



2 § With extensive upgrading referred to in this law such

upgrade whose cost exceeds 50 per cent of

the investment costs for a new comparable facility.

of equipment for carbon capture at a

combustion plant.



The obligation to carry out a cost-benefit analysis



a cost-benefit analysis of paragraph 3 of this law shall be carried out at

the planning of



1. a new thermal power generation plant with a total

rated thermal input exceeding 20 MW,



2. a new industrial plant with a total rated thermal input

more than 20 megawatts of generating usable waste heat,



3. a new network for district heating or cooling, or



4. a new energy production facility with a total rated thermal input

effect on more than 20 megawatts within an existing network for

district heating or cooling.



A cost-benefit analysis shall also be carried out in the planning of

a comprehensive upgrade of such existing facility

referred to in the first subparagraph of paragraph 1, 2 and 4.

waste heat from nearby industrial plants.



Appropriations



section 5 of the Government or the authority, as the Government determines

shall notify the



1. further provisions on the obligation to perform a

cost-benefit analysis referred to in paragraph 3,
