Two systems were evaluated, a 250 kW AD community combined heat and power (CHP) system for 23 houses and a High School and a 500 kW AD community CHP system for a High School, Primary School and 108 homes. The systems would be operated with locally produced maize silage and provide heat and power via a district heating system. The intention is for the local community to become an ESCO.
250 kWe and 250 kWth Anaerobic digestion plant and a 500 kW kWe with 440kWth AD plant to provide district heating and electricity.
