Example cogeneration configuration

Cogeneration is the simultaneous production of two useful forms of energy, such as electricity and high temperature heat, also known as combined heat and power (CHP). By harnessing more energy from one generation process, cogeneration increases energy efficiency and can reduce greenhouse gas emissions when compared to other power systems. The generator can be located close to where the energy is needed, enabling local or building-based systems to control their own power.
