Fuel Cell - Biggest market by Type
Fuel cell-based micro CHP systems are the most widely used micro CHP units worldwide.
Among the two major types of fuel cell-based MCHP systems, PEMFC (proton exchange membrane fuel cell) and SOFC (solid oxide fuel cell), PEMFC-based micro CHP held the highest share in 2014, due to its low heat-to-power ratio and avoidance of thermal cycling. Fuel cell-based micro CHPs are preferable for continuous operation purposes.
PEMFC-based micro CHP are mostly used for residential purposes.
Asia-Pacific is the Dominant Market for Micro CHP
The Asia-Pacific is the largest market for micro CHP among other regions studied in this report. The Asia-Pacific will continue to dominate the micro CHP market, seeking micro CHP legislation and product testing projects and research, which has begun in Japan and South Korea.
