P. Rousku, J. Kaikko, K. Kokkonen, M. Lehtovaara & E. Vakkilainen
Small­scale combined heat and power (CHP) generation is developing, especially for wood fuels. Many technological options are needed in the market. The purpose of this paper is to address important practical pre­conditions for the design of a small­scale bio­CHP plant. Also, the objective is to show the benefit for the plant manufacturers to build up co­operation networks to achieve the latest technological performance and highest economy. This networking applies as well with the energy entrepreneurs...
