  • Development of an advanced system of fuel cell cogeneration of heat and power (micro-chp)

    A micro-CHP system is a small heat engine that provides all the power for a home: heating, ventilation, air conditioning and electricity. Many times, the electricity generated can be sold to the grid using the natural gas that gets to the houses. TECNALIA is working in a system that consists of two parts: a reactor to produce heat and hydrogen from natural gas, and a fuel cell that converts ...

  • Micro cogeneration could reduce greenhouse gas emissions, says EC

    Greenhouse gas emissions could be cut sharply using micro combined heat and power systems (micro cogeneration), according to new research. The research suggests that micro cogeneration plants could contribute to the 20 per cent reductions in greenhouse gas emissions needed by 2020 to meet the targets set under the Kyoto agreement. Meeting the Kyoto commitment to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) ...
