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-8 became the first high-pressure heating plant in the USSR. The power plant supplied a number of industrial enterprises in the south-east of Moscow with thermal energy.In 1968, Mosenergoproekt developed a project to expand CHPP-8 to 550 MW. The first power unit with a capacity of 50 MW came online in December 1972. In November 1981, CHPP-8 was spun off into an independent enterprise, Mosenergo. In 1982, a power unit with a capacity of 50 MW was commissioned. In 1986, a 110 MW unit and two water-heating boilers of 180 Gcal/h were commissioned at CHPP-8.The station underwent a few modernization efforts. In particular, the station's turbines for the first time used a ball-cleaning system for the pipes of condenser, which made it possible to reduce the annual cost of standard fuel by 2800-3000 tons. At CHPP-8, a mechanism was used to obtain nitrogen for use in energy purposes, which made it possible to reduce specific fuel consumption and abandon expensive imported raw materials. Also, an evaporator plant has been introduced, which makes it possible to reduce the loss of steam, condensate and heat through the technology of evaporating contaminated condensate and obtaining clean demineralized water for boilers. In addition, a waste oil homogenization unit was introduced using cavitation equipment for their subsequent combustion, which made it possible to significantly reduce the amount of harmful effluents.Steam pipelines of power boilers and turbines were replaced at CHPP-8. Work is underway to transfer the management of hot water boilers to a full-scale automated process control system. Scheduled replacements of transformers are being carried out. Works were carried out on the installation of a heat and power plant using steam exhaust from R-50-130 turbines using highly efficient plate heat exchangers (peak boilers) to obtain additional electric power in the amount of up to 80 MW.
