This report summarises the results of a pan-European study, part funded by the European Commission SAVE programme, on the potential for micro and mini CHP in Europe. The study, which ran from April 2001 to April 2002, had the objectives:- to evaluate the technologies, markets and players; to assess grid connection and electricity payment issues; to estimate the possible system take-up in different countries up to 2020 ; to assess potential energy, CO2 emission reductions and cost savings; and to propose possible routes by which the new technology could be exploited.

The project team brought together experts from the cogeneration, electricity, gas, housing, renewable energies and small generation industries, as well as experience in the coordination, planning and forecasting functions. The project was coordinated by Faber Maunsell Ltd (previously ECD Energy and Environment) with partners the European Association for the Promotion of Cogeneration (COGEN Europe), Energy for Sustainable Development Ltd (ESD), EA Technology Ltd, European Union of the Natural Gas Industry (EUROGAS-GERG), SIGMA Elektroteknisk AS, and Enervac- Flutec Ltd.

The "Full report" available here as a pdf file is the public domain document funded by the EU SAVE programme.  A more detailed version of the study is available from Faber Maunsell on a commercial basis.
