Micro CHP Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Demand for Space Heating– As reported by the World Green Building Council, 28 percent of buildings worldwide use heating, cooling, and lighting systems that contribute to energy-related greenhouse gas emissions. Micro CHP systems provide a reliable and continuous heat supply for space heating. Unlike conventional heating systems that rely on intermittent fuel combustion, micro CHP systems operate continuously, ensuring a steady heat output. This is particularly beneficial in colder climates or in buildings with high head demands.
  • Increasing Development of Infrastructures– Cities throughout the world will add about two trillion square feet of infrastructure by 2060, equivalent to building a city the size of New York every month for the next 40 years. As infrastructure such as residential buildings, commercial complexes, and industrial facilities are being developed, the energy demand in these sectors also rises. Micro CHP systems can cater to the growing energy requirements by simultaneously providing electricity and heat. This makes it an attractive option for meeting the increasing energy needs of new infrastructure.
  • Need for Lowering the Electricity Prices– In the first months of 2022, global energy costs rose by more than 26%. Micro CHP systems support on-site power generation, reducing the need to rely solely on the electricity grid. By producing a portion of the electricity consumed directly at the point of use, micro CHP systems can offset the amount of electricity purchased from the grid. This self-generation of electricity can lead to reduced consumption from the grid and subsequently lower electricity bills. Moreover, it also reduces the energy loss during transmission.


  • The Installation Expenditures are High- The initial cost of micro CHP installation is higher compared to conventional heating systems or standalone electricity generation technologies. This cost can be a barrier for potential customers.
  • Low awareness about its benefits and capabilities
  • Fragmented market and lack of standardization

Micro CHP Market Segmentation

Prime Mover (Fuel Cell, IC Engine, Stirling Engine)

The fuel cell segment is estimated to hold approximately 55% share of the global micro CHP market in the year 2035 by growing at a notable CAGR over the forecast period.  Fuel cells offer clean energy generation with minimal environmental impact. They generate only hydrogen and heat as a byproduct. Further by integrating fuel cells into micro CHP systems, the overall environmental impact can be reduced, contributing to cleaner and more sustainable energy generation. Furthermore, the rising demand for hydrogen energy will also drive the demand for fuel cell. The world's need for hydrogen increased by 5% to 94 Mt in 2021, owing mostly to increased activity in the chemical and refining industries. Furthermore, hydrogen usage in 2019 was 91 Mt. Micro CHP can play a significant role in hydrogen energy generation by utilizing hydrogen as a fuel source.

Fuel (Natural Gas & LPG, Renewable Resources, Hydrogen)

In 2035, the natural gas & LPG segment is likely to accumulate a significant share of around 40%. Owing to abundance and easy accessibility is increasing the use of natural gas and LPG in micro CHP systems. Moreover, natural gas is a highly energy-dense fuel, so when it is utilized in micro CJP systems, natural gas can be efficiently converted into electricity and heat, resulting in high overall energy efficiency. Micro CHP systems with natural gas fuel can achieve electrical effectiveness of over 30% and overall efficiencies exceeding 80%.
