R. Boukhanouf,     University of Nottingham, UK

Abstract:

Small-scale CHP has a huge potential to deliver energy savings and be an effective carbon mitigation strategy in commercial buildings and institutions. This chapter starts with a brief discussion about energy requirements, trends, and the regulatory frameworks driving energy efficiency in these types of buildings. Then details on technical and operational characteristics of small-scale CHP technology are given with emphasis on implementation in different types of buildings. Finally, future prospects and ways to support the technology are discussed.
