Why Micro Gas Turbines?

A single micro-gas turbine unit is capable of producing:

  • Electricity of 150kW
  • Heating/Cooling of 275kW

This way, a single unit satisfies energy demands of more than 180 households (roughly a small neighborhood).

In addition, the use of micro-GT has several advantages:

  • Multi-fuel capability
  • Low emissions
  • Reliability
  • Compactness (low footprint)
  • Low noise / vibration
  • High power-to-weight ratio
  • Long service life
  • Short start-up times
  • Peak shaving capabilities
  • Renewables integration

It is also possible to conveniently adapt the micro-GT to combined heat and power generation with potential system efficiency (η) greater than 85%.
