Within the framework of the technology development program for residentialmicro-cogeneration applications in the Netherlands, system assessment studies are conducted. This report describes typical residential electricity and heat demand levels and patterns for individual households in the Netherlands. By installing natural gas fuelled co-generation equipment, based on Stirling, gas engine or fuel cell technologies, to fulfill the residential energy demands, a savings potential for primary energy and emissions reduction is created.

An overview is given of the micro-scale, natural gas fuelled technology options that are currently under development, and design considerations in order to utilize the savings potential to a high degree. A SWOT analysis describes the strengths, weaknesses, as well as opportunities and threats.
