Combined Heat and Power

Prof. Dr. Francois Lanzetta, University Bourgogne Franche-Comté (France)

ICREGA’16 aims at gathering scientists and engineers from academia and industry to discuss the generation and applications in the broad field of Renewable Energy (RE) applications.
The growing worldwide demand for less polluting forms of energy has led to a renewed interest in the use of cogeneration technologies in the residential and industrial sectors due to their potential for significantly reducing the quantities of pollutants emitied and for increasing the efficiency of energy conversion and use. Cogeneration (Combined Heat
and Power or CHP) is one of the most effective and efficient form of power generation.
Cogeneration systems (have the ability to produce both useful thermal energy and electricity from a single source of fuel such as biomass or natural gas, solar energy or oil.
This special session is dedicated to the Combined Heat and Power related topics including, but not limited to:

► Green architecture
► Stirling and Ericsson heat engines
► Fuel cells
► Solar systems
► Biomass cogeneration plants
► …
