Cogeneration systems and equipment suitable for
residential and small-scale commercial applications like
hospital, hotel or institutional building are available, and new
systems have developed. These products are used or aimed for
meeting the electrical and thermal demands of a building for
space and domestic hot water heating. In last years
cogeneration has played a significant role in Turkish energy
strategy, with plans to satisfy the considerable portion of
Turkey’s requirements for electricity from cogeneration. The
main purpose of this work is to supply the demand for
electricity and heat for housing complex in Turkey.
In this study, it is showed that cogeneration systems in
housing complex are an extremely profitable investment for
country and consumers. Here application of cogeneration on
housing complex was made in Istanbul. It is stressed that this
technology should be applied as an energy method in old and
new housing complex.
The aim of this paper is to maintain a study by using real
consumptions of housing complex in Turkey. Electricity and
natural gas consumption quantities have been obtained from
housing complex. Finally as it is resulted from payback period
approach the system is paid off itself in 1.33 year,
approximately 16 months.
