CHP is an abbreviation for Combined Heat and Power. It is a technology that produces electricity and thermal energy at high efficiencies. Coal units track this information in the Captive Use section when known.

CHPP-16 provides heat and power supply to industrial and household consumers in the north-west of Moscow with a population of more than 1.5 million people.The construction of the Leningrad CHPP (the original name of CHPP-16) began in 1940. With the beginning of the WWII, the construction of the power plant stopped. In 1945 the construction resumed. The commissioning of the first power unit with a capacity of 25 MW took place in 1955, and in 1963 CHPP-16 reached its design capacity of 300 MW. As a result of the reconstruction and modernization of the plant equipment, the installed capacity of CHPP-16 increased to 360 MW.In 1974–1982, CHPP-16 was converted to burning gas-oil fuel with the construction of a new fuel oil facility and the reconstruction of power boilers. Modernization of heating and turbine equipment was carried out with the introduction of a scheme for three-stage heating of water. Wastewater treatment facilities were built; installations for the neutralization of aggressive waters were put into operation. At power boilers, measures were taken to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions with the installation of multi-stage fuel combustion systems.In 2014, CHPP-16 took over three boiler houses: RTS Krasnaya Presnya, KTS-11 and KTS-11a.In December 2014, CHPP-16 commissioned a CCGT-420 combined-cycle power unit, which more than doubled its installed capacity. The main equipment of CCGT-420 is gas and steam turbines with synchronous generators manufactured by Siemens (Germany), as well as a three-circuit waste heat boiler manufactured by EMAlliance (Russia). The efficiency of the power unit (in condensing mode) is 58.2%.The commissioning of CCGT-420 made it possible to reduce the fuel consumption for power generation, reduce the plant's operating costs, and improve the environmental performance. With the commissioning of CCGT-420, CHPP-16 also got the opportunity to decommission inefficient and obsolete equipment. Since April 1, 2016, turbine units No. 3 and 4, manufactured in 1956, as well as boiler unit No. 5, manufactured in 1958, have been decommissioned.[5]
