Energy storage for small and micro combined heat and power (CHP) systems

A. Price,     Swanbarton Ltd, UK


Several types of energy storage technologies are described and assessed for their suitability for applications alongside CHP systems. The technical and commercial requirements are described. Distributed energy storage is also a means of providing grid or network services which can provide an additional economic benefit from the storage device. Electrical energy storage is shown to be a complementary technology to CHP systems and may also be considered in conjunction with, or as an alternative to, thermal energy storage.
