Abstract

This paper presents effects of housing electricity and heat source equipments. We studied about energy saving effects of 4 equipments, CO 2 Heat Pump water heater (CO2-HP), Micro Gas Engine Co-Generation System (GE-μ CGS), Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cell Co-Generation System (PEFC-CGS), and Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Co-Generation System (SOFC-CGS). As the result, we have found that energy consumption and CO2 emission reduction rate is the highest in case of SOFC-CGS. Energy consumption is reduced by 17-20% using SOFC-CGS on Electric Power Load Tracking Operation, and 44-47% on Rated Operation. And CO2 emission is reduced by 5-20% on Electric Power Load Tracking Operation and 22-46% on Rated Operation.
