Micro-CHP Called 'Critical' to UK's Energy Future

Micro-CHP may be the key to achieving the United Kingdom’s ambitious energy and  environmental policy goals, according to a new report by JDS Associates.
Micro-CHP encompasses a spectrum of energy technologies that produce heat (which can be used for space heating and hot water) and electric power simultaneously.

Unlike conventional combined heat and power (CHP) applications, micro-CHP produces relatively small amounts of heat and electricity.  For example, conventional CHP systems commonly produce enough heat and power for large, mulit-buildings hospitals.  By contrast, micro-CHP systems are typically sized to produce heat and power for a modestly sized home.
