different technologies can be used for micro-CHP, including stirling engines, rankine engines, internal combustion engines, and fuel cells.

Fuel cell based micro CHP units in homes and commercial buildings can help the electricity grid assimilate more renewables according to the Technical University of Denmark.

Scientists published a report explaining the need to create a market for electricity services to draw new technologies such as micro CHP into wider use and accelerate the cost reduction needed for general consumer uptake. Read More

renewable geothermal heat source, which will supply between 40 and 50% of our heat requirements.

The Technical University of Delft want the campus to be energy neutral by 2020. Part of this metamorphosis involves a new smart heat grid.

TU Delft is converting the existing heating system into a smart heat grid that provides heat at various temperature levels from various conventional and renewable heat sources.
