Reduction of residential carbon dioxide emissions through the use of small cogeneration fuel cell systems
11th November 2008
Topic(s): Energy efficiency, Fuel switching
Combined heat and power systems (CHP) enable users to operate with increased overall efficiency thus reducing consumption of fossil fuels and green house gas emissions. This study investigates the potential of fuel cell based CHP systems in domestic and small commercial applications to reduce green house gas emissions. Fuel cells in this application have advantages of very low emissions and potentially higher power to heat ratios than other CHP systems.
