Objective

This European project aims at developing and demonstrating a small-sized hybrid system with the combination of the MCFC technology and of micro gas turbine (MTG). The development of such a small-sized hybrid system will allow lowering the production costs through the development of new and simpler processes with a better quality control and a higher yield for the different components.

This hybrid system will be suitable for the development of a dispersed generation system, suitable for CHP supply at high electrical efficiency and very favourable environmental impact. The technology chosen should enable to provide effective solutions in the 100-500kW range, corresponding to a very wide potential market (residential, agricultural, small industries); as a matter of fact, the approach should facilitate the end users and the Energy Services Companies to adopt this solution.
