Micro-CHP pre-compliance and appliance testing

Kiwa GASTEC is one of Europe’s leading testing and certification bodies for cogeneration and power systems.

Micro CHP – the simultaneous production of heat and power (often called co-generation) at small scales is of increasing political and public interest.  We are involved at many levels including testing and certification of individual technologies, data audit of the Carbon Trust m-CHP field trials, and management of large laboratory tests to assess the quality of delivered power from m-CHP systems.  We work with many technology types including:

  • Cogeneration – engines
  • Cogeneration fuel cells
  • Fuel cell power systems
  • Gas heat pumps
  • Hydrogen generators and components 

We provide pre-compliance assessment, approval assessment, quality assessment, product certification and surveillance for GAD-included products. We are also the principal author of Publicly Accessible Standard (PAS) 67 - the performance standard for micro-CHP units.
