Micro-cooling, heating, and power (micro-CHP) is decentralized electricity
generation coupled with thermally activated components for residential and small
commercial applications. A micro-CHP system consists of a prime mover, such as
a reciprocating engine, which drives a generator, which produces electrical power.
The waste heat from the prime mover is recovered and used to drive thermally
activated components and to produce hot water or warm air through the use of
