Abstract(s)Developing efficient energy generation technologies has become essential due to scarcity and high prices of fossil fuels and environmental concerns. The purpose of the present study is to develop a conceptual model based on a cost-benefit analysis applied to a cogeneration system for a micro-scale application, considering the Portuguese framework. The economic viability assessment of a micro-CHP system is of utmost importance in the decision making process when considering a new investment. The micro-CHP systems offers some benefits that underlie their economic viability: the capacity of producing heat and power at consumption place; allows the reduction of transmission and distribution losses; maximizes the utilization of primary energy by reducing waste heat; and finally offers significant contribution to pollutant emissions reduction. The development of optimization models has proven to be a valuable tool for the design and techno-economic assessment of micro-CHP systems.
