Combined Heat & Power

Overview

Cogeneration is the simultaneous production of electric power and usable heat from a single fuel source. Cogeneration is also known as combined heat and power (CHP). A typical cogeneration system is often a natural-gas-fired or steam-driven electrical generation plant with the addition of heat recovery equipment. The recovered heat can be directly used for space heating or process heating purposes, or indirectly used to power thermal chillers for cooling purposes.
