Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


The aim of the project was to establish a flexible and efficient decentralised combined heat and power (CHP) plant and to obtain experience for implementing similar small-scale plants in other communities. The CHP plant has been under construction for the past two years and is located in a community at Hundested, Zealand. The plant is supplying heat to an existing district heating network owned by the consumers. The electricity generated at the plant is sold and delivered to EFFO, the local public power company. The plant consists of the following main systems: (i) a medium speed four-stroke engine with direct heat recovery for district heating; (ii) a heat pump for utilisation of low-temperature cooling; (iii) heat-storage facilities for storing heat for delivery within 24 hours; (iv) two natural gas-fired boilers for peak-load capacity. The gas-fired boilers are also installed as stand-by boilers to avoid any interruption in the heat supply to the district heating network.
