A new EU research project will design a novel small-scale cogeneration engine using biomass to produce heat and electricity, which could mainstream renewables in the heating and cooling sector. The project, called SmartCHP, has been launched today in June by ten partners, under the coordination of BTG Biomass Technology Group.
The engine will be designed to have high flexibility, meaning that it can easily operate with different loads and produce more electricity or more heat as demand changes. As the SmartCHP system is hybrid, it can also be integrated with variable renewables, such as wind and solar.
