The main objectives of this thesis are to investigate and analyze the current operational environment for biomass-based small-scale CHP units in Finland. The study examines current policies and support measures, investment and production costs, and possible alternatives of small-scale CHP generation and provides a comparative analysis of operational environments in Finland, Germany, Austria, and Sweden. The majority of data was gained through the study of countries’ legislations on the support schemes and policies for renewable energy. Moreover, the data about equipment related costs was obtained during direct communication with manufacturers. As a result of the work, proposals on support measures for small-scale renewable CHP installations are presented.
