Abstract

Climate change and continuously increasing energy prices have driven the need for low carbon and renewable energy technologies from different sectors, including the domestic sector, by installing higher energy efficiency technologies. One of these technologies is the Stirling engine based micro-combined heat and power (CHP) which has the potential to achieve lower overall carbon emissions by generating both heat and electricity locally. Its successful implementation to meet the energy demands (thermal and electrical) throughout the year depends on several factors such as the size and type of building and demand profiles. In addition, the deployment of large number of micro-CHPs may have significant impact on the performance of the power distribution networks.
