Micro-CHP: a power station in your home

Combined heat and power (CHP) systems are have made the leap to the domestic market. Domestic or Micro-CHP systems save primary energy by converting a fuel source to both heat and electricity. The waste heat of the system is captured and contributes to th…
Combined heat and power (CHP) systems are a common feature of modern power stations where the waste heat from the boilers is utilised nearby for factories or district heating. The… http://www.howgreenami.co.uk/blog/micro-chp-power-station-your-home/

Domestic biomass ... the low down

Burning wood to keep warm and cook food is as old as humanity itself. The traditional open fire, while still popular, is inefficient and wasteful. So now new energy efficient and "renewable" heating systems are available; from the ubiquitous wood-burning …

The case for domestic micro-generation

Micro-generation technologies, such as solar photvoltaics, heatpumps and biomass, show the potential to provide up to 40% of domestic energy by 2050. Due to the mainly renewable nature of micro-generation, they could help reduce domestic carbon emissions …
