Overview of micro-scale CHP technologies for distributed generation in the residential sector

    Abstract

    Cogeneration (combined heat and power, CHP) systems have the ability to produce both electricity and useful thermal energy from a single energy carrier, for example natural gas. Several manufacturers have developed, or are developing, small-scale CHP products aiming for residential applica-tions. Such CHP systems can be based on: fuel cells, internal combustion engines, external combustion Stirling engines and micro-turbines. The commercial viability of cogeneration plants for residential scale buildings has yet to be gained. Also the true potential for residential cogeneration energy and emissions savings is yet to be firmly established. This paper provides a review of various cogeneration technologies suitable for residential applications and discusses their features.
