Combined Cooling, Heating and Power (CCHP) is an efficient, clean, and reliable approach to generating power and thermal energy simultaneously from a single fuel source on site. A CCHP system is usually designed to provide power in the form of electricity while recovering the available waste heat for serving heating and/or cooling load. We start this chapter with an overview of the state-of-the-art in CCHP systems applied to commercial and residential buildings to maximize their primary energy efficiency. We continue with a discussion of available prime mover options ranging from classic technologies, such as internal combustion engines, to emerging technologies...
