Summary

The project has undertaken an expansive analysis of micro-cogeneration and associated technologies. The scope of activities encompassed:

multi-source micro-cogeneration systems, polygeneration systems (i.e. integrated heating / cooling / power generation systems) and renewable hybrid systems (collectively termed micro-generation);the integration of micro-generation, energy storage and demand side management technologies at a local level (integrated systems);customised and optimum control strategies for integrated systems; the analysis of integrated systems performance when serving single and multiple residences along with small commercial premises; and the analysis of the wider effects of micro-generation on the power distribution system.

Participants: Belgium, Canada, P. R. China, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, the Netherlands, United Kingdom, USA
