Efficient small micro-CHP generators are coming !

Micro combined heat and power or micro-CHP or mCHP is an extension of the idea of cogeneration to the single/multi family home or small office building in the range of up to 50 kW.

As it turns out, most homes already have half of a miniaturized power plant. Electricity is just a part of our daily energy consumption - we also need heat to keep us warm. We need thermal energy to heat our homes, hot water and food. And so, in the US, more than 60 million homes are heated by natural gas and there are 100 million gas boilers installed in European homes.

Now, technologies are becoming available to complete the rest of the miniaturized power plant. This is called micro-combined heat and power (CHP). Micro-CHP generates both electricity and heat simultaneously at the size of a home. The heat meets the demand for space heating and hot water, while the electricity provides power for home appliances.

Conference on Sustainable Business & Development in Asia

This international, peer-reviewed weekend event will be held in partnership with the 3rd International Conference on Disaster Response and Management (DREAM 2017) and the 3rd Conference on Sustainable Tourism in Asia (COSTA 2017).

Nearly 30 years ago, the Brundtland report – formally titled “Our Common Future” – launched the concept of sustainable development as “the process of change in which the exploitation of resources, the direction of investments, the orientation of technological development, and institutional change are all in harmony and enhance both current and future potential to meet human needs and aspirations.” At the heart of the concept of sustainable development lie two interrelated challenges: how to address our growth needs, in particular those of the developing countries, given the limitations imposed by the state of technology and social organization on our ability to meet present and future needs.

"East Meets West: Innovation and Discovery"

From natural phenomena and the results of climate change to pollution and societal traumas, migrations and war, the enormous challenges that face humankind and our environment are frequently daunting and difficult to comprehend. However, with every new challenge or disruption comes the opportunity for innovation and discovery. Whether inventing new technologies, implementing innovative systems, enacting better policies, legislation, or governance, or ensuring greater cooperation and information sharing, responses are many and varied.
