collaborate in order to develop a set of technical solutions for a new market segment for polygeneration, in particular the market for small tri-generation systems.
The main objectives of operation of this combined system called “Combined heating, cooling
and power (CHCP)” are the following:
• To reduce the consumption of conventional energy for cooling by use of waste heat
from a co-generation system in combination with a thermally driven cooling process.
• Thereby to improve the economic viability of the entire system by an increase of the
annual operation time of the CHP unit.
CHCP technology already exists on a large scale, mainly for industrial applications and some
district cooling applications. The goal within PolySMART is to develop further application
areas using small-scale CHCP systems in the commercial, tertiary and residential sectors.
