Combined Heat and Power Technology Fact Sheet: Microturbines

This fact sheet provides an overview of microturbines, which are relatively small combustion turbines that can use gaseous or liquid fuels. While large gas turbines have been used for CHP applications for several decades, microturbines emerged as a CHP option in the 1990s. Individual microturbines range in size from 30 to 330 kilowatts (kW) and can be integrated to provide modular packages with capacities exceeding 1,000 kW.
