Technical and Systems Assessment of Innovative Flexible Micro-CHP Concepts for Solid Biofuels

A. Ortwein, N. Szarka & D. Büchner
An increasing share of fluctuating sources (wind and solar) is causing problems on power supply and grid security, fluctuations therefore must be balanced. Biomass as a storable energy carrier can be a technical option for that. In decentralized applications, solid fuel micro¬CHP concepts have the potential to support the electrical grid while supplying domestic users with heat and power. For the technical and systems assessment of these units, experience from the evaluation of domestic heat...
