Decentralised power generation is becoming a relevant part of future energy supply systems within smart-grids. Micro-scale combined heat and power generation systems (micro-CHP systems) meet the necessary requirements perfectly and are thus expected to become an integral part of such future energy supply systems. The intensified development of biomass fed micro-CHP systems over the last few years provides substantial evidence for this claim. This paper provides an overview of technologies which are currently under development...
