Micro-Combined Heat and Power Systems (CHP)

Micro Combined Heat & Power (Micro CHP) is the simultaneous production of heat and electricity. Effectively the Micro-CHP unit replaces the gas central heating boiler and provides heat and hot water as usual, but additionally can provide a home’s electricity needs.

 

MCS approved products satisfy rigorous and established European and International standards. In addition to laboratory testing, the product manufacturers also must undertake factory production control audits to show that they have the management systems in place to support the quality production practices and demonstrate the products at the end of the production line are of the same quality as those that are tested.

 

Below are the standards requried to be met for Micro CHP (Heat and Electricity led) products  under the MCS scheme.
