Towards a strategy for micro CHP in the USA domestic markets

USA DoE National Micro CHP Technology Pathways Workshop in Washington DC, 11th June 2003

Micro CHP (Micro Combined Heat and Power) has been identified as a significant element in fulfilling the energy efficiency and environmental aspirations of a number of European countries and has evolved from concept to imminent commercial reality over the past decade or so. EA Technology undertook feasibility studies as early as 1989 and has since worked with a number of micro CHP developers, assisting them in their commercialisation process. At the same time, numerous strategic studies have been undertaken to evaluate the potential impacts of micro CHP on the energy industry in Europe. A number of micro CHP developers have indicated a limited commercial launch in the near future and it is likely that several hundred systems will be installed in the UK alone over the next twelve months.

The USA Department of Energy has identified the potential opportunity for implementing micro CHP to the various domestic markets and is seeking to determine an appropriate strategy for the exploitation of this technology. This paper aims to outline the key issues in this context, based on experience gained from the European market development process. It is intended to elaborate on the slide presentation given at the National Micro CHP Technology Pathways Workshop in Washington DC on 11th June 2003, as well as to respond to some of the points raised at that time.
