Abstract [en]

The paper describes the realization of a modular 1-3 kWe, 3-9 kWth micro Combined Heat and Power (m-CHP) system based on innovative Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) and Stirling engine technology. This CSP m-CHP will provide electrical power, heating and cooling for single and multiple domestic dwellings and other small buildings. The cogeneration of energy at distributed level is one of leading argument in large part of energy policies related to renewable energy resources and systems. The actual marketable solar systems for domestic and distributed applications (PV and Solar thermal) suffer of notable limitation: i) the low overall (electrical) efficiency of PV systems create a small collected energy from available space, sometimes restricted in surface to few square meters, ii) the stagnation temperatures on solar thermal collectors actually limiting the diffusion of solar thermal systems, iii) fixed and not retrofittable systems may generate energy in intermittent way not aligned with the auto consumption profile of domestic spaces.
