Letter: Deptford's burning, fiery furnace

Sir: I read with great interest Nicholas Schoon's excellent article 'Hellfire in the belly of a green machine' (9 May). It did not stress sufficiently the financial savings that Combined Heat and Power (CHP) installations can offer. Neither did it stress CHP's more efficient use of the heat and power generated, compared with oil, gas and coal systems.

At the risk of sounding like an advertisement, I should like to say that my institute will soon publish guidance on the evaluation of installing and managing CHP systems. This will allow the doubters of Deptford to make up their own minds.
