This research finds that decentralized energy systems running with renewable sources would be the best option to fight climate change and global warming and have a more sustainable future. To address the issues mentioned above, we propose an innovative cycle by combining local CHP systems that produce heat and electricity simultaneously and bio-electrochemical reactors that treat wastewater and generate electricity, hydrogen, and methane at the same time. Outputs of our cycle will cover a proportion of heating and electrical demands of residential or non-residential buildings in urban areas. like at Concordia University.
