Smart and flexible heat and power from biomass derived liquids for small-scale CHP application

Project description

Efficient micro cogeneration engine powered by biomass

Micro combined heat and power systems are an energy-efficient technology that simultaneously provides heat and electricity to households and businesses. The vast majority of these cogeneration plants use natural gas and fossil fuels as their primary source. The EU-funded SmartCHP project will design a novel small-scale cogeneration engine using biomass to produce heat and electricity. The main novelty is the use of fast pyrolysis bio-oil from different biomass types in a converted diesel engine, which has been chosen for its high electrical efficiency. Integrated with variable renewables such as wind and solar, the new system will generate power from biomass when the electricity provided by wind and sun is unavailable, thereby, securing the supply of renewables.
