Proposal number EXAW-1999-01079

AcronymHAUS - Energie

Proposal titleSmall-scale total energy systems powered by biomass and wastes

AbstractApplication is made for assistance in preparing a Step 2 proposal aimed at developing

small-scale 'total' energy generation systems for European markets by 2005. The target

development will exploit advances in gas conditioning, filtration and electro-chemistry to

generate 'high-grade' energy, in the form of medium CV gas and electricity, from renewable

carbohydrate feedstock (energy crops and agricultural wastes) and from selected domestic

and commercial wastes. The main novel features of these generators, to be demonstrated

during Step 2, are: 1.   independently controllable generation rates for the main products so

that arbitrarily variable demands for both can be met (up to the maximum capacity for

each separately); 2.   the elimination of all major moving parts; 3.   generation

efficiencies of over 50% for electricity and over 90% for medium CV gas, these

efficiencies rising as load decreases. The final commercial package will be competitive with

fossil-fired equivalents.
