Projects and publications

Energy Matters has recently reviewd the design and operation of an air handling unit (AHU) of a large industrial client, saving more than 40%.  Read more here.

CODE2 – project: Following the successful CODE project that drew attention to the potential of cogeneration in the 27 EU Member States for the first time, the CODE2 project ( has been developed to investigate how that potential can be achieved. Results have been presented. The main task of Energy Matters in the CODE2 project was to estimate the potential of micro-CHP (<50kWe) in Europe. In order to do so the technical potential for micro-CHP is assessed and translated into an expected market potential for each European Union Member State. Read more about this project. Publications about the CODE2 – project by Energy Matters:

  • CODE 2 project delivers new projections for European micro-CHP. Read more

Other publications by Energy Matters:

  • Fuel cell CHP passes the point of no return – 31 March 2014 – The use of fuel cell technology in combined heat and power applications is commonly viewed as being at an early stage of development. However, Arjen de Jong and Martin Horstink argue that significant advances in the last 12 months mean this is no longer the case. Read more
  • CHP’s future in a sustainable energy market – 28 January 2015 – The Netherlands is set for significant growth in sustainable power production which, if present goals are met, will change its power market dramatically. Stijn Schlatmann and Martin Horstink of consultancy firm Energy Matters ask whether there is a future for conventional power such as Combined Heat and Power (CHP) in the Netherlands – and, if so, how plant operators should deal with this changing environment.
