The different types of Types of CHP and microCHP Technologies

By in
  1. Internal Combustion Engines (ICE): These are widely used CHP systems that use natural gas, propane, diesel, or biomass as fuel to generate electricity and heat.
  2. Gas Turbines (GT): These CHP systems use natural gas or other fuels to turn a turbine, which generates electricity and hot air that can be used for heating.
  3. Micro Turbines (MT): These are small gas turbines that generate electricity and heat from natural gas or other fuels.
  4. Fuel Cells (FC): These microCHP systems use fuel cells to chemically convert fuel, such as natural gas, into electricity and heat without combustion.
  5. Stirling Engines (SE): These microCHP systems use Stirling engines that burn fuel to heat a gas which then drives a piston, generating electricity and heat.
  6. Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC): ORC is a small-scale power generation technology that produces electricity and heat from low-temperature heat sources such as waste heat from industrial processes or geothermal water.
  7. Steam Turbines (ST): ST plants generate electricity by using steam to power a turbine, which rotates a generator. The heat for the steam is provided by burning fuel or by using waste heat.
  8. Combined Absorption Chillers (AC): These systems generate cooling for buildings while simultaneously producing heat and electricity, including absorption chillers and chillers with heat recovery systems.
