Renewable micro-CHP systems are a combination of micro-CHP technology (which, at present, are mainly powered by non-renewable fossil fuels (e.g. natural gas)) and renewable energy technology, such as biomass gasification systems or solar concentrators. The integration of renewable energy sources (RES) with micro-CHP allows for the development of sustainable energy systems with the potential for high market penetration; a cost- effective and reliable heat and electricity supply; and a highly beneficial environmental and economical impact on a pan-European scale. This co-ordination action intends to bring together industrial specialists and research experts to focus entirely on renewable micro-CHP technology. It will co-ordinate and steer research in this field and highlight the most promising technologies with the highest potential for market penetration in existing and future market conditions.
